Buckwheat is a naturally gluten-free ‘grain’ (it’s technically a seed!) that’s gained a lot of popularity on the health scene lately. So what are the benefits of buckwheat and is buckwheat worth the buzz?

Buckwheat is…

◽High in fibre⁠

◽Source of protein containing all 9 essential amino acids⁠

◽Rich in minerals like iron, zinc and copper⁠

◽Packed with antioxidants⁠

◽Filling, satisfying and delicious

◽Extremely versatile (sweet or savoury!)⁠

If you follow me on Instagram or have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know I absolutely adore a big bowl of porridge, especially on a cold winter morning. However, having oats for breakfast everyday can get a little repetitive, plus we all know that diversity in the diet is key to good gut health! So sometimes I like to switch things up and replace my morning oatmeal with this Buckwheat Porridge – scroll down for the full recipe for my Cinnamon & Vanilla Buckwheat Porridge.

My top tip for making your buckwheat porridge extra thick and creamy is swap half the water for your favourite milk (I use almond milk) and to add a scoop of protein powder.

Toppings: This is the fun part! Play around with different fruits like stewed berries or grated apple, a spoonful of nut butter (my favourites are ManiLife peanut butter and Meridian almond butter) and a sprinkle of Eli’s Granola 😊
