I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before!
Creamy porridge, with a dash of peanut butter and a tiny pinch of salt to bring out the flavour. It’s gorgeous. And the PB helps you go longer!
Place the oats in a saucepan and add the milk and salt. Bring to a gentle boil then turn down to simmer. Stir until the porridge turns thick and creamy.
Stir in the honey and PB and cook for another 30 seconds.
Add some sliced banana if you like, but it’s pretty spesh on its own.
You are now set for the morning.
Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.
Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!
Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!
Peanuts are also a rich source of manganese which also helps with having fantastic bones and skin as well as helping to control blood sugar. And in these days of diabetes epidemics that’s a huge bonus.Nuts for the win!
