It was in my local health food shop that I first discovered the nutritious brand Brookfarm – there was a little display with a small array of the products – muesli, macadamia oils (which I have previously raved about), bars and walkabout mixes. Much to my excitable delight, Brookfarm has released a new item to their breakfast menu – Gluten Free Porrij.
Gluten Free Porrij is filled with inner goodness and is a warming way to start your day. Designed to be rich in protein, included in the 400g air-tight pack you’ll find a small list of organic ingredients (including cinnamon, which is deliciously spicy) – brown rice, millet, quinoa, amaranth (your protein sources) and almonds, macadamias and golden flaxseeds which are a nutritious source of omega 3. You’ll also find no added sugars, no preservatives and a low amount of sodium.
The serving suggestions are quick and simple, simply top with milk, add fruit of your choice, and a dollop of honey/cinnamon – however you prefer to do your porridge. I genuinely love this breakfast, it is truly quick to make – quicker then traditional oats – it’s satisfying, creamy, delicious and very good for you. I’ll definitely be stocking up when I’m out of my current pack.
There is also another version of porrij – Power Porrij – which contains oats for you lucky people who aren’t intolerant. Brookfarm have successfully created yet another wonder of a product – a truly genius company which helps bring enthusiasm to healthy eating.
