Grandma’s Constipation Porridge Recipe


WHOLE GRAIN PORRIDGE – Great for maintaining regularity

1 Tbsp. large flake oats

1 Tbsp. whole rye

1 Tbsp. flax seed

1 Tbsp. wheat berries

1 Tbsp. millet

1 Tbsp. whole barley

1 Tbsp. raisins

(Other grains I add are kamut, spelt, quinoa, and amaranth)

This is the ancient recipe as I got it handed down from grandma.

Soak all grains overnight with lots of water to cover. In the morning, boil grain mix for 5-10 minutes with water, but don’t let it get too dry. Turn off the heat and let stand for 20-30 minutes. If desired, add a pinch of Celtic sea salt. Chew well.

Helpful Tips:

1. Measure out 1 cup of each of each grain and store the large mix in a glass or heavy plastic bucket with a lid. Mix well. Scoop out ½ cup per serving, let it soak overnight, and cook it up in the morning. It makes a crunchy, satisfying breakfast.

2. Add a cut up apple or seasonal berries to the porridge after it has cooked. So tasty!

3. Put left over porridge grains in soup. It tastes great, and adds whole nutrition.
