Sweet Polenta Porridge Recipe

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
Serving Size: 1-2 Servings

Sweet Polenta Porridge is a whole new take on breakfast. Polenta is medium-ground corn that is quick cooking and full of vitamins and minerals. Since this porridge is made from a whole grain and uses the natural sweetener agave nectar, it’s a great way to start your day. Get sustained energy to make it through your mornings.

A grain is considered whole when all three parts – bran, germ and endosperm – are present. Most people know that fruits and vegetables contain beneficial phytochemicals and antioxidants, but many don't know that whole grains are often an even better source of these key nutrients.

In fact, whole grains are a good source of B vitamins, Vitamin E, magnesium, iron and fiber, as well as other valuable antioxidants not found in some fruits and vegetables. Most of the antioxidants and vitaminsare found in the germ and the bran of a grain.
