The health benefits and healing properties of turmeric are well documented, so why not indulge in a comforting bowl of warm, golden turmeric porridge.Fibro Food Fairy
The health benefits and healing properties of turmeric are well documented and there is strong evidence to suggest that oats help regulate our sleep cycles. Some medical practitioners will even recommend having a bowl of porridge in the evenings if you have trouble sleeping. This may be because its helps prevent our blood sugar levels from dipping too low over night meaning that not only do we sleep better during the night but we may also feel better when we wake in the morning. Maybe this would be better as a pre-bedtime snack rather than an early morning breakfast.

Warm, comforting and super healthy
- 40g gluten free porridge oats
- 125mL dairy free coconut drinking milk (or your favourite dairy free milk)
- 125mL water
- 1 tablespoon turmeric milk powder (I use Sweet Revolution, available online) or 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
- Serve topped with seeds toasted in maple syrup
Add the top four ingredients to a non-stick saucepan and heat through gently until desired consistency, approximately 3-4 minutes. Alternatively place in a microwave bowl, on full power for 2-3 minutes. Then top with your maple toasted seeds.
FIBRO FOOD FAIRY TIP: For the seed topping I grab handfuls of my favourite seeds, coat them in a little maple or ginger syrup and toast them in the oven on a non-stick baking tray for 6-8 minutes at 170° C fan.
