It is an old-fashioned one, but it is easy to follow. There is no slaving over a hot stove for hours. A little preparation is all you need. Try it; you’ll love it.
Use raw oats and soak them overnight!
While it’s true that oatmeal contains many nutrients, but that means very little if you can’t absorb them. Oats are low in gluten, but high in phytic acid. Phytic acid is an anti-nutrient that can inhibit your body from absorbing minerals properly.
Only by soaking the grain do we enable enzymes and other helpful microorganisms to break down and neutralize phytic acid as well as predigest gluten. Therefore, it’s necessary to give your oats a long soak in salted water before making your favorite oatmeal.
Add protein-rich bone broth gelatine into your porridge!
Why add bone broth? It provides your body with proteins, including collagen proteins and gelatin.
- Soak the oats in just enough water to cover them;
- Add the sea salt and cider vinegar;
- Leave overnight;
- The next morning, drain the oat/salt/vinegar mixture and rinse thoroughly;
- Add fresh water, again enough to cover the oats, and bring the oat/water mixture to a boil. Use medium-plus heat. If you like “thinner” oatmeal, add more water;
- Add butternut squash puree;
- Turn the heat down to low-medium and stir until the porridge is as thick as you want it. You can add water if you like your oatmeal more on the runny side;
- Remove the cereal from the heat, and add the butter and honey.
- Add the bone broth;
- Cover and let the mixture rest for about 5-to-10 minutes;
