We hopped off down to the newly opened, post covid, southwest of Western Australia over the weekend and had a lovely time! We had an amazing brunch at Meelup Farmhouse, which I highly recommend as being on your foodie go to list. We didn't order this specifically, but I noticed on the menu some sort of chia seed porridge and so this idea was born. I already have a bit of a thing for a bowl of warm steamy porridge...we could do an ebook any day of warm breakfasts. I can feel it coming on.
This is gluten free, protein packed, paleo, probably keto if you looked into it, and sugar free, dairy free by design and choice, though we had it with honey, raspberry lime coulis and berries and cacao nibs. YUM...A real winner. You can make the mix ahead of time and then just make the actual porridge on demand. It is that simple. Happy Wintery Warming Healthy (cafe-ish) Breakfast!
