The ’Laid Back’ evening porridge is a near perfect evening meal. It calms, relaxes, and tastes soothingly soft. The mellow coconut, oat, and sweet blueberry taste separately wonderful, but together make a superb mix. The ’secret ingredient’ in this recipe brings a touch of balance to the nervous system, and it contains melatonin. This combined with the tryptophan oat meal porridge naturally contains the ’Laid Back’ evening porridge is perfect for calming down before bed time and helping us to fall asleep.
Let’s not keep the secret ingredient a secret any longer: I’ve hidden a dose of Terranova’s Oat & Cherry Super Blend powder in the blueberry chia seed jam! I love to pimp up foods, and this product deserved to be combined with something already soothing and calming.
The Terranova Oat & Cherry Super Blend contains green oat grains and cherry that naturally contains melatonin. Green oat, on the other hand, has traditionally been used to calm a restless mind, so the combination doesn’t sound all that bad, now does it? Luckily I no longer have troubles sleeping, but my mind does tend to make its rounds during the evening when I should rather be letting go of the day’s event and stop planning the coming day. With this porridge relaxing feels a bit easier no matter how busy a day I’ve had, and I fall asleep without problems.
Spring always seems to be a busy time, but luckily the sun boosts up our days with some extra energy, and by making sure we sleep well it’s easier to manage even the busiest days without stressing them over. We often have this porridge last thing in the evening, and I must say: I simply love this evening meal!
