The recent addition to my breakfast, Yola Porridge is packed with nuts and seeds and brings a whole new dimension to healthy porridge. Lots of Breakfast cereals have wheat as the main grain. Many people do not realise that a large % of the population have an intolerance to wheat. You could be intolerant and not even know that it does not agree with your body. I myself have a slight intolerance to wheat, if I eat a lot of white bread my body would suffer gut pains. This was bad for my body and as soon as I realised that wheat was my problem. I cut out the bulk intake. My body was functioning perfectly and my pains ceased completely.
Although I had cut bread out of my diet, I found it hard to find a substitute cereal that was wheat free. It was not very hard to find wheat free Granola or Porridge but finding one that I really enjoyed was the main hardship. Till I found this great Irish produce Yola Porridge. Porridge is easy to digest Great for young or old, even great as a slow release of energy for athletes in training. Its Jumbo oat flakes and oat bran combine to ensure a hearty, Low G.I. breakfast.
The Nuts and Seeds add great flavour and texture. Almonds, Sunflower Seeds contain a host of healthful nutrients. Just a handful packs a helpful punch of vitamins, minerals and fats, all of which work together to affect your heart, your brain and your waistline. I never get those low points before lunch after having porridge for breakfast. I found myself snacking less and feel much healthier now a days.
I eat porridge for breakfast most mornings, but eating the same thing everyday can become extremely boring. There is an easy way to jazzing up regular old porridge, it’s really filling and super healthy! If you’re avoiding dairy or just want to change things up by all means use almond or soya milk instead. You can add honey, cinnamon, nuts, seeds, fruit, sugar the list is endless. So many things can be added to may porridge more palatable. My personal favourite is adding blueberries, I even arrange them to make a smiley face, which is a bit of fun for the kids too.
All in all, I personally believe that the best start to anyone’s day is a filling healthy breakfast, porridge is definitely a win/win. I hope you try it yourself.
