11 Recipes For World Porridge Day: Eat Like A King:

So, I am trying to get all focused on getting fit again and my downfall is having sweet things for breakfast. Once I get back into a regular exercise routine, I usually eat more healthier too.

Porridge with syrup, porridge with fruit and nut, porridge with jam, porridge with chocolate spread you name it I eat it!

I often make up healthier versions of porridge up when I am back on my fitness mission but also love the unhealthy versions too!

When I have sugar for breakfast I find I have a sugar craving all day long. Then when I have more sugar I eat more and more sugar!!

To avoid eating sugar, I like to fill up on porridge, fruit and nuts so not getting a sugar boost first thing. This way I am also fuller for longer and I am not snacking on other bits and bobs.

One of my favourite healthier porridge breakfasts is this one with an apple in it. A lot healthier than adding sugar on top!! So happy national World Porridge Day, everyone.

    What a fun post! We don’t use the word porridge much here in the states, so it holds a bit of mystery! I see most (not all) are from oats, which we just call oatmeal. How boring is that!! ? I really only know the word from peas porridge hot, the rhyme!

    What a lovely array you’ve assembled!

      Thanks for stopping by, yes porridge is the same as oatmeal I think 🙂

    Hi Claire, sugar is my guilty pleasure, it's something I wouldn't dream of giving up, but I do try and control the amount I have. Adding fruits of the forest, honey and cinnamon to my porridge (or yogurt) gives me the sugar kick I need sometimes. You would love it over here, cinnamon is added to everything (not quite, but it's used a lot) and I think the type we use here is much stronger than I remember the cinnamon in the UK being…. I don't think I'd like savoury porridge. Mushrooms on porridge did not look good! … Last week, I made porridge for the first time this winter and I cocked it up big time. It was far too thick and salty, not nice at all. xx
