Or “Mum’s Bread”. My mum gave me this recipe not long ago and it’s become a staple in our house, a little bit strange seeing I’m not a baker (too precise for me) and I don’t eat a lot of bread (makes me feel bloated) but this is soooo easy and fuss free to make and it’s made with spelt flour which although still containing gluten is easier to digest and contain a lot more nutrients than white flour.
That’s a bit of a mouthful and not a very sexy name but at least it gives you an idea of what it is! Another porridge but I just couldn’t help myself as it’s so good. I’ve obviously been experimenting a lot with porridge for breakfast lately, the cooler weather makes me crave something warming and sweet instead of my usual breakfast salads.
I thought I would share my principles that I live my life by in order to feel and look the best I can. I don’t believe in depriving myself or fad diets. What I do believe in is balance and eating real, wholesome foods with as few added preservatives and additives as possible. I believe in eating food that taste like food should, fresh, tasty and yummy which is why I prefer seasonal, local food, ideally organic and free range meat and eggs. I also believe in an active lifestyle as well as self care and a daily “time out” time to just be.
I’ve summarised my top 10 Healthy Living Principles below.
I’m loving porridge at the moment as it’s so warming and filling. I’m playing around with different grains and seeds and milks, my favourites so far are barley or steel cut oats with coconut milk and banana or pear. This morning it was oats, with coconut cream and cinnamon, yummy, sweet and creamy and just what I needed after training on a cold morning.
I love these pancakes, they tick all the boxes, they are easy, quick, healthy and most importantly loved by the whole family. They only contain a few ingredients all of which you most likely have at home so it’s perfect to whip up for a cold winters morning when you crave something warm, filling and sweet.
