Brain/Body Prebiotic Porridge

Sara Gottfried Brain Body Diet Recipe |Prebiotic|Prebiotic PorridgeThis porridge is what I eat when I want something warm and comforting in the morning—or the occasional dinner! It is packed with fiber, which plays an important part in gut health and healthy hormonal balance. Fiber also features in my Brain Body Diet detoxification protocols. 


1 cup warm unsweetened almond or cashew milk (or milk of your choice; volume will depend on desired consistency)

2 scoops vanilla or berry protein powder or medical food (look for one containing at least 20 grams of vegan protein)

½ scoop greens powder (look for one containing organic wheatgrass, spirulina, spinach, barley grass, alfalfa, chlorella, and kale)

1 scoop fiber powder

Optional: ½ to 1 teaspoon each of fructooligosaccharides, inulin, or glucomannan (a prebiotic blend)


6 ounces berries
2 to 3 tablespoons soaked chia seeds
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
Optional: 1 serving nuts of choice such as macadamia, walnuts, or almonds (one serving is 28 grams, a small handful, about 18—20 almonds)

Use a spoon to mix porridge powders with milk, using more or less milk to achieve the consistency you prefer. Add toppings and eat immediately.
