Let's freeze the speeding time for a moment to enjoy this comfy healthy millet breakfast with peaches spiced with ginger!
Hi lovely, summer is running down the road, make sure you don't miss to make this healthy millet recipe for breakfast before the peach season is over!
"Why should I?" you may ask.
Because you'll be missing out something delicious, and hey you'll have to wait for almost 8 months to enjoy fresh peaches again, isn't that sad 🤔?
This millet recipe is showcasing blood peaches, millet, yogurt, ginger, and apple cider vinegar!
I googled to find out more about blood peaches, but I found they're not popular peaches!
Here in France, we refer to them as " vineyard peaches" as they grow among the vines. They are deep in red color and have a sweet-tart flavor.
If you can get some of these blood peaches, then go ahead and make this millet recipe breakfast.
Otherwise, pick peaches of your choice, for example, I added some nectarines (which are also peaches) in this millet recipe. But get well-riped peaches otherwise the crunchy peaches will not make a comfy millet breakfast.

I've shown you how to cook millet the best way
- Millet is a gluten-free seed. It remains alkaline after cooking which is great for people with digestion problems.

Health benefits of yogurt & apple cider vinegar
I chose to add yogurt and apple cider vinegar for they contain bacteria (probiotics) which will benefit your microbiome.
Adding leaving bacteria through fermented food, yogurts and vinegar will help populate your gut with new micro-organisms.
This will help you improve your health and alleviate some diseases especially those caused by gut issues like auto-immune diseases, cancer, etc…
