Oh my, where to start. It's been a while since we published. Much has happened since the last post.

We went on a beautiful 2 week vacation to Sardinia, Italy. We swam in the crystal clear waters, we sunbathed on the beautiful beaches, we ate delicious Italian food and, above all, we do not think about things related to work, but we take time off from work, blogging, social media, and just … relaxed.

Then, still on vacation, I was able to get a nasty urinary infection. I was not feeling well, and after 2 weeks I started developing a fever, so I finally visited the doctor who prescribed antibiotics for a week.

At about the same time, our cat Gingi came home with a bloody paw and a dislocated toenail, and also received antibiotics and pain relievers. Tomorrow we will see the vet a third time to assess the situation with his bad claw and decide what to do next. He no longer feels pain, but he is under house arrest and bored. The past week he has been waking us up 3 times a night, every night, meowing, jumping on our faces, just to hug, eat or play. We are sleep deprived and are only looking forward to the day when we can get him outside again.

And then I have this situation with salads. It is not very new, it has been developing for some time, but suddenly, whenever I eat a salad (or various green leafy vegetables or cabbage), I feel intense stomach pains and nausea. There are times when I can eat salad, and I'll be fine, and then next time, I'll be in pain for 2 hours. It is strange, and we are now pinpointing the cause of perhaps the oil we use, or the vinegar. I haven't given up on salads yet as I love them but I need to prove what is causing me pain which means more salads and potentially more pain and nausea. So, for now, I limit myself to cooked food.

It's good that it's fall, when I prefer cooked foods to raw, and when mornings are cool enough to choose a cooked breakfast instead of smoothies or oatmeal overnight.

Speaking of cooked breakfast, I'd like to turn your attention to this cinnamon apple buckwheat porridge:

Yes, it is a buckwheat porridge, made from buckwheat grains, not oats, and is vegan and gluten free. And delicious, to top it off!

Is buckwheat gluten free?

Buckwheat, despite the name, has nothing to do with wheat, and it is not a grain, but a seed. Therefore, buckwheat is gluten-free and safe to eat if you follow a gluten-free diet. Just be sure to choose a brand that is processed in a gluten-free environment.

How long does buckwheat take to cook?

Buckwheat (or kasha) grains take about 20 minutes to cook. We like to cook it for about 10 minutes and then let it rest in a covered pot for another 10 minutes until the beans absorb all the liquids. So we also like to cook our rice.

How do I make a buckwheat porridge?

Making your own buckwheat porridge is really simple: add plant-based milk to a pot, bring to a boil, and add buckwheat grains. Then cook for about 10 minutes and let stand in a covered pot for another 10 minutes. We like to wash buckwheat beforehand and season the milk lightly with salt. This is the basic recipe, but if you want to make these buckwheat porridge with cinnamon and apple, just add a little cinnamon, vanilla, and a grated sour apple when adding the grains and let everything cook for 10 minutes, then let stand for 10 minutes. another 10 minutes To serve, add coconut yogurt, almond butter, chopped apples, and roasted chopped hazelnuts.

Can I prepare buckwheat porridge to prepare meals?

Absolutely! Buckwheat porridge is kept very well refrigerated in an airtight container, so prepare a pot ahead of time and then spread out in airtight containers throughout the week. You can also add the coconut yogurt and almond butter, but add the diced apples and toasted hazelnuts just before serving (or in the morning) to keep them crisp.
