Power Porridge

Porridge is an inexpensive basic breakfast – that even can be tasty.

Ingredients (for 4 portions)

  • 1 cup porridge (grits or oats) (100 g)
  • 1/2 quart water (5 dl)
  • 2-3 apples, grated
  • 1 tbs lemon juice, fresh
  • 1.4 ounce walnuts, chopped (40 g)
  • 3 1/2 ounce dates, cut small pieces (100 g)
  • 1/2 quart fruit yogurt (540 g)


  • walnuts and dates



  1. Bring the water to boil.
  2. Pour the porridge slowly, while stirring, into the water and let it simmer at very small fire for about 30-40 min (oats take only 20 min). Add more water as needed, occasionally stirring to make sure the porridge does not stick to the bottom.
  3. Let it cool down
  4. Mix in the grated apples, lemon juice, nuts, dates and yogurt.
  5. Serve in pretty bowls and decorate with some of the nuts and dates.


Variation with seeds: I replace nuts also with sunflower seeds, add flax seeds and sesame seeds and instead of the dates, use raisins or dried cranberries.

Variation with cacao: for flavor add cacao and leave away the lemon juice and instead of fruit yogurt add some cream.

Dr. Lustig's Book

In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control.
