Oats porridge – Who loves gooey?

Ooey-gooey breakfast choice!

1 ddrop

I go bonkers if I skip my breakfast. Nothing serious…but would talk to myself, a lot…forget the names of people around or open cupboards and stare at the contents not realizing what I am looking for. One sure cure for this disorder is a breakfast porridge!

Porridge is a quick fix for the morning rush as there is no need to chew the food like some hardy granola clusters or in-your-face cereal bars. This is one of those guilt free food that I love after festive over-indulgences. Oats porridge can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for those… lazy…no cooking days, hungry like a monster days or eat some goop days.

My husband leaves to work very early when all the birds are still asleep. As I wake up way after the feathered friends and do not cook up a storm in the morning, the chances of an elegant breakfast on weekdays is rare. So he carries this almost regularly for the first meal of the day. I totally approve it, as his poor heart is getting weary of all the fat and meat. This is a very low fat and low cholesterol goody. I secretly wonder that he has the guts for this gummy ordeal!

I am not a big fan of this gooey porridge but I prefer it on a very health conscious day to team with the wholesome, robust people.
