There’s nothing like a warm porridge on a chilly fall morning. And personally, I love nothing more than enhancing my whole foods with even more nutrition. This porridge is special because it contains a blend of adaptogenic herbs (Everlasting Vitality & Youth) to help cope with stress, boost energy, and support beauty and longevity. Having this after a long night of work or simply during the busy holiday season will support your health while still enjoying a comforting and delicious meal. Feel free to play around with toppings of your choice to make the best porridge ever!
