"I never used to be a big breakfast eater and I still can’t really stomach much before 11am, however porridge is the perfect breakfast/brunch to fuel you throughout the day. These are really simple, delicious, quick recipes that you can play around with the toppings. Nut butters, nuts and seeds sprinkled on top will give you a healthy serving of  essential fats and protein which will help keep you fuller for longer. Your blood sugar levels will be stabilised and should prevent you from snacking before lunch. These recipes can be made into overnight oats if you prefer to eat them in the summer or if you are lacking in time in the morning."
