This recipe relates to the blog post: So what’s the big deal about breakfast?
One of my biggest bugbears is the lack of attention that people pay to how they start the day. It has been scientifically proven that the first foods we eat each morning will dictate the way our blood sugar fluctuates for the rest of the day so ideally we want to begin on a good footing. Plus it definitely makes sense for us to take in the most of our energy at the beginning of the day, then we can race about with a full tank rather than fuelling up in the evening when we’re winding down to go to bed.
This Perfect Porridge, is simple, satisfying and perfectly balanced, to keep you going through to lunch.
Place your oats in a pan and pout over 1/2 cup boiling water, cover and leave to absorb for 5 minutes.
Add the milk and warm gently on a medium heat, stirring intermittently to encourage the oats to release their wonderful creaminess.
When you’re happy with the consistency (this is a personal choice, I am in the extra creamy camp but I know others prefer a less wet texture) swirl through your apple and allow to warm through for a minute or two before decanting into a bowl and topping with the walnuts, prune pieces and flaxseed.
