We’re told it’s the most important meal of the day. It eases our body into action and prepares us for the activities ahead. It kick starts our metabolism after a night of rest and the effects of a good breakfast can be felt throughout the day.
I’ve recently switched to the most basic of breakfasts …. porridge.
While it’s easy to be seduced by the shiny, bright packaging of processed breakfast foods, I’ve got to admit that I’m really not missing the sweeter, more ‘exotic’ breakfast cereals. These days I simply whack some oats, a little honey and some water in a bowl, shove it through the microwave, add just a dash of milk and I’m ready for a good start to the day. (I may negate some of the healthy benefits of my rolled outs with my big mug of strong, black coffee, but that’s a risk I’m prepared to take.)
I should say that I’ve been surprised at how much cheaper rolled oats are than other cereals and how long a packet lasts. When I was choosing which oats to buy I grabbed the Lowan Wholegrain Rolled Oats from Lowan Whole Foods because they cost less than most other brands and I wasn’t paying for fancy packaging.
Lowan Rolled Oats contain the goodness of 100% wholegrains and are milled using a method which retains a high percentage of nutrients.
A bowl of Lowan Rolled Oats can keep you feeling full for longer. Naturally low in salt and containing vitamin B1, each serve of Lowan Rolled Oats is high in complex carbohydrates and dietary fibre.
So, are you a porridge eater? What do you have for breakfast? Are you in the habit of skipping breakfast?
