2. Apple Cinnamon Buckwheat Porridge
Kristina Jug & Mitja Bezenšek‘s Apple Cinnamon Buckwheat Porridge is an easy and delicious breakfast that will start your day off right. Buckwheat, despite the name, has nothing to do with wheat, and it’s not a grain, but a seed. Therefore, buckwheat is gluten-free and safe to eat if you’re on a gluten-free diet. Buckwheat Porridge keeps really well refrigerated in an air-tight container, so make a pot ahead, then portion out in air-tight containers for the week. You can also add in the coconut yogurt and almond butter, but add diced apples and roasted hazelnuts just before serving (or in the morning) so they keep the crunch.

Spread it on a piece of toast, put it in oatmeal, eat it with a spoon––the options are endless!

The probiotic bacteria digest the sugars in the apple butter, making it slightly less sweet and with a yogurt-like tanginess. Plus, the fermented apple butter is packed with gut-healing healthy probiotic bacteria that aid digestion and your overall health. Also, fermenting the apple butter is as easy as transferring it to a jar, adding 3 probiotic capsules, stir, and let sit on the counter for a couple of days. No extra work needed!
