Porridge

Welcome to my porridge made with coconut milk, dried apricots, a pinch of himalayan pink salt and a sprinkle of milled flaxseed, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. It is all gone in my tum tum along with four Ibuprofen which is the whole reason my warrior diet has been temporarily out the window. My shoulder injury warrants anti-inflammatory medication four times a day at quite high doses. Each dose must be accompanied by food otherwise it plays havoc with the stomach. I have fallen off all sorts of wagons and yesterday I vowed to go back to my no sugar/no alcohol diet at least until Christmas. Apart from the exceptions of course such as afternoon tea tomorrow with a friend and the work Christmas do on Saturday.

Mmmm...that sounds good.

That looks good! I have done no sugar a few times but I cannot stick to it very long.

I love porridge. Sorry to hear that you are having to cope with a shoulder injury at this time of the year (or any time of the year for that matter).

The milled seeds sound interesting.

I looked at the photo before reading and my first thought was macaroni and cheese. :) I hope your shoulder heals quickly!

Bev Thanks, it was good.

Melanie I think it helps when you have a really good reason to give up sugar. For me it means no migraines and reduced depression. So it is easier.

Anji Thanks. I hope you have been ok?

KarenD LOL I can't imagine the mac and cheese!

I've never been quite sure of what porridge is... except I know that it is something eaten by Goldilocks and the Three Bears... but yours looks yummy!

The porridge looks great although I'm not sure I could take 4 ibuprofen.

Thanks Nicki it really is rather nice and just the natural sugars in the apricots to sweeten it. it is like oatmeal but with more texture.

Believe me Rashbre those 4 pills are easy to take when a pain is insistent. As long as I eat plenty of food with them to protect my stomach.
