Coach Jared’s Power Porridge

This power breakfast is packed with all kinds of great nutrients, sustaining carbohydrates, complete proteins and good fats. Eat it 30-60minutes before a long ride and you will be good to go for a long time! I will even spoon some of my left over porridge into plastic baggy and squeeze it into my mouth during a long ride! Ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup Millet
  • 1/3 cup Buckwheat
  • 1&1/4 cup water
Bring water to bowl and add the Millet and Buckwheat; cover and reduce to a simmer for 25-30minutes or into buckwheat and millet is soft. Mix in:
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut
  • 1 Tablespoon rice protein powder
  • 1 Tablespoon flax and/or chia seed.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Sweeten with apple pureed in a food processor or a mushed banana and Agave Nectar to taste if needed.
  • Top with berries, granola, crisped rice and a milk of choice…
Chocolate variation: For a totally different taste substitute 1-2 tablespoons of 100% cocoa with the mushed banana mixture and a bit of agave for a rich chocolate flavor.  I usually make my flavoring mixture in a separate bowl while the porridge is simmering.
Makes about 4 servings and keeps for a few days so you can eat it cold the next day or warm it up.
