Recently I was diagnosed with an intolerance to foods with FODMAPs.

Yes, I had the same reaction – what the (ahem) are FODMAPs? But that is another post – which I promise I will write…  I have since done a lot of research into the subject and discovered that when I eat a low FODMAP diet I feel amazing. No bloating, feeling sick, burbly stomach or fatigue. But whether you know about FODMAPs or not, I thought you might be intersted in this healthy breakfast recipe.

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to be at a loss for what to cook for breakfast – these days two pieces of toast just doesn’t seem to cut it and anything else can either take hours to prepare or isn’t going to keep the hunger pangs at bay.

So recently I came across a new porridj (well that’s how they spell it, I suppose it sounds much cooler than plain old porridge). Anyhow, Brookfarm gluten free porridj ( ingredients include brown rice, millet, almonds , quinoa, flaxseed, macadamias and cinnamon).  This alone is a bit plain, so I jazzed it up with some stewed rhubarb (no added sugar – simply simmer rhurbarb in a pan with water).

Then I added a touch of maple syrup and a spoon or two of chia seeds. You can also add some banana or any other dried or fresh fruit you wish.

This is particularly good if you are pregnant or breastfeeding – and remember you can eat this any time of the day or night – enjoy!

I will be posting more low FODMAP recipes and I’d love to hear if you know of any good recipes.
