Overnight Millet Porridge (Millet Congee)

Overnight Millet Porridge (Millet Congee)

I love having easy breakfast for my kiddos… and because I practice intermittent fasting I like to put a pot of overnight millet porridge (a lectin free type of congee) in the instant pot once or twice per week.  Feel free to add whatever you like… I tend to cook it most times with just salt and cinnamon but sometimes I will throw in a fig or a date and then mash it up in the morning.  You can do this quickly as well by setting your pot to pressure cook for 15 minutes.  You can incorporate this into a gut healing protocol as well.
