Rev Up Your Metabolism With 3 Easy No-Cook Porridge Recipes (Gluten-free + Vegan!) Hero Image

Overnight porridge is a simple, energizing, and delicious way to enjoy a healthy homemade breakfast without a fuss, and it’s just as nutrient-packed and versatile as oatmeal.

Sweet or savory, you can add any fruits, nuts, spices, nut butters, or veggies that you have on hand for flavor. And the best part: No cooking is required! Simply combine your ingredients the night before, cover, and stick in the fridge.

Here are three of my favorite combinations that defeat belly bloat, jump-start your metabolism, and stave off hunger for hours. They also happen to be both gluten-free and vegan. For a protein-packed breakfast, just add a spoonful of yogurt, nut butter, or chia seeds to your bowl.
