In-House Made Porridge Blend of Honest Goodness
To ensure that your porridge not only nourishes but also tantalises your palate, we have curated a distinctive Porridge Blend - a harmonious fusion of rolled oats, rolled rye, polenta, and linseed. This carefully crafted medley is your one-stop solution for a wide array of nutrients that will revitalise your mornings and set you up for the day.
For an optimal experience, we recommend soaking this blend overnight in a combination of water and three tablespoons of lemon juice. This small step can greatly enhance the health benefits of your porridge. By soaking in this 'acidulated water,' various enzymes and lactobacilli leap into action to break down and neutralise a significant portion of phytic acids, which are naturally found in grains. This process not only eases digestion but also boosts the nutritional uptake from your meal. An added bonus? A porridge that is irresistibly smoother and creamier!
