Porridge is a dish often eaten for breakfast. It’s made by boiling grains in either water or milk. Many of us incorrectly thinks it’s boring. Why? I think a porridge is a great way for us to start a day. It’s a whole grain, it reduces your chance of dying for a heart disease. Moreover – it has so much fibre and it will give you an energy for a whole day!
Why is breakfast important?
I bet you have always heard your mother and grandmother saying that it’s important to eat your breakfast. I never knew why. Well, it’s a time for some explanation.
First thing first. Breakfast SHOULD NEVER be eaten within two hours from the time you wake up. NEVER. First thing you do in the morning should always be drinking one-two glasses of water to hydrate yourself! Then exercise, if you usually do. Then eat. If you don’t want to struggle waking up two hours before you usually do, do an hour. At least one hour. Did you ever go to work or school feeling angry? That is because you didn’t have your breakfast. It has much to do with stress hormones.
Moreover, eating breakfast long term reduces obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Healthy breakfast should be around 20%-35% of your daily calorie intake.
Porridge in 50 ways.
As I said before – porridge doesn’t have to be boring!
There is so so many ingredients that pair very well with porridge.
I rather to have it sweet, but you can even have it with your bacon if you like. I will put a list of toppings that pair with porridge quite well. Try to put at least 5 of those. Or more if you like! Oats are maybe 30 percent of my porridge. The more you put, the more vitamins and all the goodness you will get with your first meal!
