Your morning porridge doesn’t need to be a bowl of boring sludge. There are lots of things you can add to your bowl which will not only make it taste great but also boost your nutrient intake and keep you satisfied and going for longer. Here are some suggestions:

 

  • Add a spoonful of peanut, almond, cashew or hazelnut butter for additional fat and protein to keep your blood sugar and energy levels stable

  • Pumpkin, chia or sunflower seeds – these are rich in zinc, and healthy fats

  • Fresh berries or defrosted frozen ones – high in antioxidants, fibre and vitamins

  • Cinnamon – for extra sweetness and to stable blood sugar levels

  • Ground ginger – a fantastic anti-inflammatory spice

  • Cacao powder – high in healthy polyphenol plant chemicals
