So I started today with a cup of hot water with lemon and a bowl of quinoa porridge. My boyfriend likes to take the mick out of me for having just hot water and no tea bag but it is known to have many health benefits, including aiding digestion and jump starting your metabolism.

I’ve only made quinoa porridge once before, but it makes a great change to my normal oat porridge, easy to make and is high in protein. Today I added banana, cinnamon and sultanas, which work amazingly as natural sweeteners and topped it off with a spoonful of Meridian 100% peanut peanut-butter to satisfy my nut addiction! I also added a spoonful of ground linseeds, high in fibre and omega-3, after the quinoa was cooked.
