We know that we are concerned about the conventional foods that are readily available today and all of the unhealthy and potentially toxic ingredients that they often contain.

Porridge - fruity
1 1/2 cups rolled oats

2 teaspoons honey
4 tablespoons chopped dried fruit, such as prunes, apricots or raisins
1. Put the oats and water in a medium-sized saucepan and bring the mixture to the boil.

For breakfast every morning I soak whole brown rice, oat groats, amaranth or quinoa overnight and then cook in the morning. Basically just bring double the amount of water to a boil, dump in the grains, reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. This is the time to add spices and onions.
You can add ANYTHING to this and it will be delicious. This morning I added carrots, onion and parsley to it. Tougher veggies should go in right after the grains and greens should go into the pot 10 minutes before you're ready to eat. Spices can change each time, and you should just try and make a different region every morning!
