Buckwheat is such an under utilised food, that I thought it was about time to get creative! And as I have been trying to live more and more in sync with my cycle, including eating foods that serve me at the different stages, I thought why not play around with a new breakfast recipe!

As a coeliac, oats just don’t quite do it for me… in fact, they kinda disagree with me, and as I know a lot of people struggle with gluten and oats are one of those hit and miss foods for a lot of people, I thought I would try out a different kind of porridge. 

This is simple, delicious and will help keep you fuller for longer as the aim is to help stabilise your blood sugar levels! 


Buckwheat is also a whole grain meaning that is a good source of fibre and B vitamins (fantastic for your gut and hormones), not to mention it packs a bit of a protein punch just on it’s own. 

However, if you know how I work, you will know that it’s always a good idea to add an extra hit of protein, especially to your breakfast to start your day off well-balanced! 

I used the @mitchells.nz Bone Broth Protein Powder in this recipe which was actually amazing! I loved it, and ended up tasting like I had mixed a little bit of maple syrup through, so I will definitely be making this again! 

Not to mention it is gluten free, dairy free and sugar free! Give it a try and let me know what you think! Be sure to tag your recreations of my recipes @strengthen.heal.nourish 



½ cup buckwheat groats
¾ cup cold water
⅓ cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp. chia seeds
2 serves of Mitchell’s Bone Broth Protein Powder
1 cup of blackberries (per serve)

Optional other toppings: 1 tbsp. coconut yoghurt, almond butter, cinnamon or other kinds of berries.


1. Put the buckwheat and chia in a jar with the water and soak overnight 
2. Before you cook the porridge, drain the excess water, then empty into a pot.
3. Heat the porridge on the stove on a medium heat, add in the almond milk (or other milk alternative) and protein powder. You can add the berries here if you like, I prefer to add mine on the top. 
4. Stir for around 3 – 5 minutes or until warm, and thickened. 
5. Remove from the pot and add toppings to serve. 

Note: I personally found that this was enough for two servings so I cooked it in one batch and then reheated the other half the second day, but listen to your body and how much you are hungry and need to fuel you!
