Amaranth Breakfast Porridge

Spring is on its way The days are getting warmer, blue skies grace us, and our bodies are ready for a reset. Try to make more savory breakfasts that include protein. They will boost metabolic activity, reduce cravings, and leave you feeling clear and energized all morning.

Hemp seeds are high in omega 3 fatty acids to reduce inflammation and balance the mood. Amaranth, a cousin to quinoa, is high in protein and excellent at fighting yeast overgrowth in the gut.


You will need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon each: cinnamon and coriander powders

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups water

  • 1 cup amaranth

  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds

Place all ingredients in a pot EXCEPT the hemp seeds. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and cook for 25 minutes, or until porridge begins to thicken. Stir occasionally to make sure it is not sticking to the bottom.

Mix in the hemp seeds and enjoy.
