Wild Porridge Recipe – Low Glycemic Wonderment

Goldilock’s Wild Porridge recipe – “It’s Just Right”

Most of us are fortunate enough to be blessed with mulberry trees in our natural environment.   The mulberry family is known for its genetic and chromosomal complexity, which may be part of the reason why it can survive in such a wide variety of environments.  Our bodies can directly benefit from this nutritional diversity!  Go out and pick a bag of mulberry leaves and dehydrate.  In terms of potency, mulberry leaves collected in autumn before they yellow are best, but certainly summertime leaves are great also.

Brew a tea with spring water, these are the herbs I include:
1) Mulberry leaves
2) Cinnamon sticks
3) Nettle root
4) Eleuthero root (Siberian Ginseng)
5) Wild-variety apple with skins on (boiled apple will make the antioxidants more bio-available. I just drop the whole apple in the tea and turn it to make sure the whole skin is softened.)

While this is brewing, prepare the rest of the porridge. Measure out about 2.5 tablespoons of chia seed and a pinch of salt into a coffee grinder. Grind well and set aside into a bowl.

Strain about 3/4 cup of the tea into the chia seed mixture. Let sit for about 10 minutes to let it gel up.

Combine the following ingredients in your blender:
1) Raw or boiled apple, core removed
2) 1 tablespoon of Great Lakes gelatin powder (grass-fed bovine collagen hydrolysate)
3) Couple drops of vanilla extract
4) 1/4 tsp of nutmeg powder
5) 1/4 tsp of star anise powder
6) 1 tablespoon of colostrum powder
7) 1 tablespoon of real maple syrup (add stevia and birch xylitol to sweeten further)
8) 1 rewilded egg yolk from your sassiest hen (or any organic free range egg)
9) Chia seed gelled mixture from part one (make sure it has cooled so not to cook the raw colostrum)
10) Optional: around a tablespoon of organic peanut butter or defatted peanut butter powder
11) Blend well!

Pour into bowl and garnish with goji berries and/or dried blueberries and/or mulberries.  Serves one or two rewilders.

This porridge can be easily adapted into a super-low-glycemic diabetic recipe by substituting stevia/xylitol for the maple syrup, and eliminating the raw apple (add more peanut butter) in the blended mix.  As it is, this alchemical creation was devised with the diabetic rewilder in mind.  Mulberry leaves inhibit glucose absorption from the digestive tract, cinnamon lowers blood sugar and chia seeds dramatically lower the glycemic index of any food it is added to. These all work to keep blood sugar steady and low and to time release the meal for long lasting energy.
