Changing up your routines can be extremely beneficial to your physical and mental well-being. It's important to keep things fresh, not only to keep your mind interested, but your body as well! Even if we're eating fantastic superfoods all the time, it's good to take a break, to keep your digestive system on it's toes and working properly. (There is a such thing as too many pro-biotics)
Adding other grains to your amaranth porridge is a great way of doing this. It will keep your tastebuds interested, and your gut processing properly. Just like you would change up your exercise routine, food should be no different!

- 1/4 cup Connect Foods Amaranth grain
- 1/4 cup quinoa
- 1/4 cup red rice (may also use black or brown rice)
- filtered or spring water
- Toppings: Connect Foods cacao nibs, shredded coconut and a little non-dairy milk of your choice
Rinse grains and drain well using a strainer. Place in a pot and cover with 2 cups spring water. Boil on medium-low for about 20 minutes, until quinoa has expanded their little tails and rice is al dente (still slightly firm). Add more water if necessary during cooking.
After reaching desired consistency, drain any leftover water and return to pot. Serve in bowls with shredded coconut, cacao nibs and (optional) a bit of non-dairy milk. Coconut milk is a delicious favourite.
(makes 2-3 servings)
