Raw breakfast: Spelt or Buckwheat – Banana Porridge

We love porridge; definitely one of our favorite foods so far. This breakfast is simple, wholesome and can be enjoyed on the run too. The perfect breakfast. It’s made of sprouted spelt or buckwheat and bananas.

Spelt, also known as dinkel wheat, or hulled wheat, is an ancient species of wheat; it’s much more nutritious and also much easier to digest than wheat.

If you prefer not eating gluten, or if you are gluten intolerant definitely use buckwheat. Despite the name, there is no wheat in buckwheat, it is a fabulous option for gluten-free diets and an excellent alternative to grains (buckwheat is not a grain).

Warning: Buy organic buckwheat of light green color (like in photo); the brownish is usually heat-treated and does not sprout. You can also use only soaked buckwheat.
