With the weather turning to Autumn then yes eventually Winter, the buzz out there with my clients is comfort foods and making that transition from all the abundant healthy fruits and veggies of the summer to warming foods that will still support a anti-inflammatory diet. A bit more in a future post about the “whys” of comfort foods.
This recipe I LOVE. Not only because of the source of it, Joshua Rosenthal
IIN Founder and Director(www.integrativenutrition.com), but also it fits in with one of the biggies in eating healthy – TIME.
Enjoy your NUTRIMEAL during the week then as a treat on the weekend enjoy the leisure of preparing a warming bowl of rice porridge. The only change I would suggest is with the maple syrup.
In the process of coaching my clients I have a list of integrative products. One of them is Agave as a sweetener. It’s low glycemic and you need less than other choices of sweeteners. Trust me, as a former 2-3 tablespoon user of brown sugar in my oatmeal, the flavor is excellent.
