Obesity & Eating Disorder Treatment Recipe: Deluxe Hemp Porridge



In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

We recently started offering cooking classes in Cincinnati to patients that are in treatment for obesity, and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder. During the classes, participants pick up basic cooking tips for preparing “clean” luscious tasting dishes, dressing, marinades, desserts and soups. To view our cooking class videos, be sure to visit my YouTube channel!

1 cup snowville whole milk or half and half (or another grassfed, organic, lightly pasteurized brand)
1/4 c hulled organic hemp seeds
1 tbsp organic chia seeds or ground organic flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp organic pure vanilla
2/3 c organic frozen fruit (mango, peaches, cherries, blueberries etc or a combination)
1/2 green-tipped organic banana, sliced
chopped organic nuts, I like walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts
1-2 tbsp organic cashew butter
1 tbsp raw hulled hemp seeds, chia seeds, or raw buckwheat groats
Coconut nectar, coconut crystals (optional, I find its sweet enough without this).

In a medium sauce pan, bring milk to a simmer. Add in 2 tbsp hemp seeds, 1/2 tbsp ground flax, cinnamon, vanilla. Stir.

Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in fruit and simmer for 5 more minutes.

Turn off heat. Stir in remaining hemp seeds and flax seed meal.

Pour half of the porridge into a mason jar. Layer sliced bananas and nuts. Pour remaining porridge into jar. Top with cashew butter, hemp seeds or chia seeds, coconut sugar/coconut nectar (optional).

Serves 2.
