Oatmeal, toast, smoothies… when you think of a typical breakfast, chances are a bowl of rice doesn’t come to mind. But since rice is full of healthy carbs, easy to digest, and unrefined, it actually makes a perfect morning meal giving you energy without weighing you down.
Rice porridge is used in the Ayurvedic tradition to balance the system during the winter; the sweet cinnamon helps digestion and the warmth of the rice and milk protects against and wintery cold.
There is nothing more nourishing to my mind than milk and rice together – the ultimate in comfort food.
½ cup rice
1 ½ cups water
½ cup coconut milk
Sweetener to taste (dates, honey ect)
