As today is World porridge day #WorldPorridgeDayI thought I would share some yummy porridge recipes here with you today!
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!!
