Is porridge good for you?
Porridge is a nutritious choice for breakfast because it is rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals. It’s also a good source of complex carbohydrates, meaning it is digested slowly and releases energy gradually, which can help you feel fuller for longer.
How to make porridge?
Porridge is typically prepared by cooking oats in water or milk, resulting in a creamy and warm cereal-like consistency. It can be customised with various toppings and flavorings to suit personal preferences. From simple combinations like honey and fruits to more elaborate creations with nuts, seeds, and spices, porridge can be transformed into a scrumptious and personalised breakfast experience.
You can also incorporate porridge oats into a smoothie, or make oatmeal biscuits for a healthier snack. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
