Plantain Berry Nut Porridge 

This is a delicious recipe that is fruity but creamy with sweet and sour tones. The best part of it is that it only took 5 minutes to make. 


Firstly welcome to my new blog this is my first post.  My name is Bachay (pronounced Buh-shy) aka Bee and welcome to my budget friendly vegan lifestyle blog.  I will feature a wide range of food, health and lifestyle posts.  So this post is the perfect introduction to my style of blogging.

Do you want to know a secret?  

If your answer is no skip to the recipe below.

If yes the secret is that this was my first meal as a vegan.  I didn't plan to go vegan, I planned to transition to vegetarian for a year.  Yet this was enough to convince me to ditch my flexatarian / mostly plantbased lifestyle immediately. As it was not only tasty but incredibly easy to make so my fear that veganism was hard and not maintainable diminished. This moment led me to began my vegan journey. This is not 
the case with most people who transition to veganism and it's because the various factors and events that forced me to change my diet previously. Read my Vegan story here

  1. I've never tried oats but wanted to for a while now. Since I love peanut butter, this might be a great recipe to try them with! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Thank you Astrid, I didn't eat porridge for 10 years as I found it was too thick and creamy for me but I was a child. Luckily this method of using water works well with me and yes I love peanut butter too ☺️.
