I call this Ultimate Porridge because it's tasty, healthy, packed with fibre and it’ll keep you going until lunch time.
Porridge – I use Sainsbury’s free from Rice and Buckwheat Porridge (link). This is a good porridge if you're intolerant or allergic to oats as well as gluten. (Check out the Coeliac UK website for a little more on gluten and oats.) - Buckwheat can lower cholesterol!
1 banana - Energy!
1 tsp flaxseed - Soluble and insoluble fibre and anti boob cancer!
1 tsp chopped pecans - I usually just crumble 2-3 of these up into the bowl - B vitamins!
1 tbsp raisins or sultanas - or any dried fruit of your choice - Fibre and antioxidants!
Soya Milk – I use Alpro Light - No animal fat and lower in sugar than cow's milk!
In a bowl, add around a handful of the porridge and cover with milk. Microwave for 2 minutes.
Add the other ingredients and mix, then return to the microwave for a further 30 seconds.
Stir through and mush up the banana, add a little more milk and return to the microwave for another 20 seconds.
Sweeten with honey or agave nectar if you prefer it sweeter.
Guaranteed to warm your cockles and keep you regular!
