Banana & Nut Butter Porridge

For me breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. If I have a sugary cereal in the morning my blood sugar is all over the place for the rest of the day leaving me grumpy and tired. Not much use If I have a full day of personal training clients. I always make sure I get plenty of fat in my breakfast as it steadies my blood sugar balance and keeps me full longer so I don’t need to snack.

Adding nut butter to porridge does the job. Try peanut, almond, cashew or my favorite is a mix of pecan and peanut butter which you can find in M&S. If you are following a Vegan/Plant based diet you can also experiment with the milk variety. I tend to use almond, rice, or hemp.
