Postpartum Overnight Porridge
If you’ve just delivered a baby, nutrition plays an important role in returning to equilibrium, which is why it’s so important to feed yourself properly. My own mama made me this creamy, filling bowl as breakfast in bed the day after I gave birth and I’ve eaten it almost every day since. In addition to making me feel warm and satisfied, it also helps with the production of breastmilk. And by the way, it’s also great if you have not just given birth, but are looking for a tasty, nutritious kick start to your day. Enjoy!
10 minutes. | ‘Soaking’ time: min. one hour to overnight
2 days in the fridge in an airtight container
1 small pan
500 ml (2 cups) plant-based milk
80 g / 1 cup oatmeal
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (roasted, optional)
1 tbsp sunflower seeds (roasted, optional)
A pinch of sea salt
a small handful of raisins
1 banana, mashed
¼ tsp cinnamon powder
¼ vanillapowder (optional)
1 tbsp cacao powder (optional)
1 tablespoon nutbutter (optional)
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl or jar and place in the fridge overnight to soak. The next morning, give the mixture a stir, transfer to a saucepan and heat on low. You can also eat it straight out of the fridge. Add a bit of plant-based milk if you want to up the creaminess. Divide across two bowls to serve (or keep a portion for the next day) and enjoy!
