Superfood Recipe: Apple, Cinnamon, Goji Berry Oatmeal with Oat Groats

When I take the time to make oatmeal for breakfast it really makes me feel I am getting a great start to the day. It makes me feel great. Having a good breakfast is very important to me, mentally and physically. Oatmeal is great, because it is good for you, easy to make, and you can add so many different flavours. When I say oatmeal, I really should say porridge, because I don’t always make it with oats. Sometimes I will add quinoa, amaranth, spelt or kamut. This opens up a whole bunch of other possibilities and variety to your breakfast.

My go to are either steel cut oats, or whole oat groats. Whole oat groats are less common, but they can be found at most health food stores or places that sell grains in bulk, or ‘en vrac’ as we say in Quebec.

Lentil, Walnut, Spinach Loaf Recipe Inspired by Oh She Glows

I made this lentil walnut spinach loaf for the first time over the holidays. I liked it so much that I have made it again since. Something that doesn’t happen very often. Rarely, do I make the same thing twice in a matter of a couple weeks, mostly because I am always trying to come up with new content for this blog.

A lot of the recipes I post here are recipes that I make up myself. The inspiration for this recipe came from my friend Nathalie. Yes, the same Nathalie that I made a couple videos with recently. Nat was telling me about all the delicious vegan food she had made over the holidays, and one of the things she made was a lentil walnut loaf. Sounded good to me. I had never made a vegan loaf of any kind before. Lentils and walnuts. Hmmmm. Thank you Nathalie for sparking my curiosity. Has anyone made a vegan loaf before? If yes, what kind?

A few days later, I found myself needing to make food for several people for New Year’s Eve dinner. I remembered what Nathalie had told me, so I decided to give it a shot. I googled lentil walnut loaf and the first one that came up was from OhSheGlows.com. Angela from Ohsheglows.com has a few different lentil walnut loaf recipes on her site. I took a look at a couple of them as well as a similar recipe from eatliverun.com Continue reading
