A porridge you may actually like? ...

I know we all have those days when we try to eat healthy - and usually we only try ;) This is a porridge you may actually enjoy - or I hope you will. I eat porridge almost every morning, as I have noticed that when I do so, I'm not feeling hungry till lunch. When I eat for ex. a toast with Nutella :) I'm hungry after 2 hours... I like plain porridge too, but to make it a little different I try to add something to it. It's usually some kind of fruit (banana, strawberries, apple...) and maybe honey or maple syrup. Sometimes I may prepare it using a soy milk instead of cow's. This combination was delicious and I hope you will try it too :) To actually eat porridge you don't have to eat it alone, on it's own - remember that and you will no longer only 'try' to start your day with a healthy breakfast!

How to make it...

- 1 bowl of porridge, made using cow's milk
- brown sugar, to taste
- 1 banana, chopped
- 2 tablespoons chocolate shavings (to make it healthier I used dark chocolate instead of milk one)

Make the porridge as per instructions on the pack - I know that some of you may have to quick one (for ex. which will cook in a microwave) and some traditional (which needs a little of boiling and stirring). To a hot porridge (but already in your bowl) add the banana, sugar (as much as you like) and mix. Sprinkle everything with chocolate shavings. Eat hot.



  1. You've inspired me. This morning I'm having bananas and chocolate on my steel cut oatmeal!

  2. Great idea to add chocolate and banana to oatmeal:)
