As I said in an earlier post, the secret to eating consistently well is to get into the routine of planning and preparing food ahead of time. Making meals in batches really helps. A super easy way to sort out a healthy breakfast is to make bircher muesli. It takes no time to pull together and it’s really easy to make a larger batch that will last you for a few days through the week.
This will be my last word on raw flax porridge options for a while....unless I discover a particularly delicious flavour combo. Apple and cinnamon without doubt is a wonderful pairing and unsurprisingly it works well in this dish. It's probably my go to option as I always have the ingredients to hand.
So there is a bit of a theme developing here. As you might tell I am on a mission to increase my intake of flax seeds, and find that this is easy if I start the day with a raw flax porridge. This means that every morning I am experimenting with different flavours. You can find a few of my favourites on this blog.
I am a big fan of the humble flax seed (also known as linseed), a bit of a dowdy cousin to the uber cool chia seeds – not a day goes by without me seeing an image of a chia pudding on social media. Whilst I wouldn’t want to knock the nutritional benefits of chia, personally am having a bit of a flax moment.
So I was looking for a healthier alternative to the standard jar of mayo and came across a recipe for what I will call 'cashew-naise'. I know it could sound a little too hardcore healthy for some, but bear with me and remember I am not interested in healthy food unless it really tastes great and believe me this does....
