Porridge and its variations like Overnight Oats With Frozen Fruit is such a popular breakfast. However, it’s traditionally made with grains like oats, which can be a common food sensitivity. Grains also contain anti-nutrients which can:-

  • Damage the gut,
  • Bind to nutrients in our food,
  • Prevent our bodies from absorbing the nutrients, which over time can lead to deficiencies (6).

It’s why grains are excluded and not suitable for those following the autoimmune protocol, paleo and whole30 diets.

One healthy quick and easy alternative is to replace oats with apples and pears, processing them in a food processor until they resemble oat sized pieces to make noatmeal.

This grain-free porridge is the perfect quick and easy yet nourishing and hydrating breakfast, requiring no cooking or baking. It’s especially great during the autumn/fall months when these fruits are all in season (this Eat The Seasons post has a full list of the fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices in season for each month of the year). Eating fruits when they’re in season has many health benefits (1):-

  • It provides us with the specific nutrients we need at specific times of year,
  • Fresher, as the time from them being picked to us eating them is shorter,
  • Higher in nutrients,
  • Stronger flavour,
  • Lower in toxins as fewer pesticides are needed to grow them.
