Good morning Porridge with banana. A minimalist diet doesn't just include simple recipes with a few ingredients that you can easily prepare. It also includes sustainability. Minimalist eating therefore only means buying what is consumed and using these foods sensibly. At my good morning porridge with blueberries and banana the banana peel remains. This is usually thrown away carelessly, but it is just as valuable as the fruit flesh that we eat every day with much enjoyment.
