This week’s recipe is from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Paleo chef, Kelsey Ale. This Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Porridge is a comforting grain-free alternative to oatmeal, packed with anti-inflammatory and high-fiber flaxseeds, tart green apple, and coconut milk for some energy-boosting healthy fats to power up your day. Kelsey also incorporated collagen protein into this porridge, which adds a complete source of protein without changing the flavor or texture. I love that this recipe has no added sweeteners; apples and vanilla extract provide just the right amount of sweet flavor on their own. Warm and spicy cinnamon brings it all together for the perfect morning meal. Download the PDF here.
