paleo pumpkin porridge
It’s still winter, which means it’s still porridge season! Porridge has always been one of my number one favourite breakfasts, but since I’ve become less and less able to tolerate oats, I’ve had to get a little creative with the sorts of things I make in the morning. Although this pumpkin porridge tastes nothing like oatmeal, it’s still warm, hearty, and comforting on a cold February day!
One of my favourite things about this porridge (or any porridge I make from now on) is the use of gelatin (I use this brand here). Gelatin is an excellent source of protein and collagen, which means happy joints and happy gut health!
This porridge can be modified endlessly, and there are plenty of variations, so feel free to play around with the ingredients. Raisins? Berries? Pear? Oh my.
