IDEAS TO PIMP YOUR PORRIDGE

Breakfast is typically labelled the most important meal of the day, and our Slender Porridge is a nutritious and tasty breakfast option. Low in sugar, high in protein and high in fibre from chia and flaxseeds, this porridge will give you the energy required to kick-start your day! It also contains guarana and green tea extract to boost metabolism and vitamin b6 and B12 to reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Although the Slender Porridge is great to have on its own, some of us may find having the same porridge all the time a bit tedious. If you are one of those people, don’t worry we have you covered! You can add a range of different tasty and healthy ingredients to ‘pimp-up’ your porridge.

Fruit
Fruits are the perfect addition to porridge, as they not only provide an influx of flavours, but they also boost the nutrient content with an array of vitamins and minerals. Fruits such as blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are popular options as they are low in sugar and high in nutrients such as vitamin C. These berries are also high in antioxidants, which means they can play a key role in protecting the body against cancer and heart disease. Our Bursting Berries Blend contains a combination of freeze-dried berries, packed with the same benefits of the whole berries. This is a quick and convenient addition to give your porridge an extra boost.

Another great fruit option to give an extra edge to your porridge is banana. This simple fruit is a staple in many of our diets and can be eaten in a variety of ways. Adding bananas to your porridge enhances taste and carries many health benefits. Bananas are high in potassium, a mineral that boosts metabolism, maintains water balance and improves heart health.

Last but not least, apples are another tasty addition to porridge. As you would expect, eating this high fibre fruit has numerous benefits for your health. Like berries, apples are rich in antioxidants and have been shown to be helpful for preventing cancer and improving bone health. Another interesting benefit is that apples have been shown to protect brain health in old age.

Superfoods
Foods that fall into this category tend to be the most nutrient-rich foods around. Most superfoods have an abundance of benefits and can improve many aspects of health. Flaxseeds, also known as linseeds are a perfect example of a superfood that can be added to porridge. These are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help to reduce inflammation and improve brain function. Other seeds such as chia, hemp and sunflower are all great alternatives and provide similar benefits to flaxseeds. These are all present in our Super Seeds Blend, which can be sprinkled on top of your porridge to help you reap some of the benefits of these amazing seeds.

Another proclaimed superfood is cinnamon, famous for its distinctive aroma and taste, this spice boasts some wonderful benefits. Cinnamon is great to add to porridge in small amounts and goes well with most fruits, namely banana and apple. The science suggests that cinnamon can help to relieve pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Another benefit of cinnamon is that it aids the regulation of blood sugar due to its ability to control insulin absorption.

Nuts
These contain a profusion of healthy fats and make a great snack as well as a perfect topping for your porridge. Almonds are a popular go-to as they contain lots of protein and fibre as well as unsaturated fats. They have been shown to contribute to reduced blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Walnuts are another interesting addition to your porridge as they provide a unique texture. These are similar to almonds in terms of nutrient content and have shown to offer comparable benefits. Walnuts have also been shown to have cancer-fighting properties and are great for improving heart health. Our 100% natural Peanut Butter is another perfect addition to your porridge. This nutrient-dense peanut butter is packed with omega-3’s and is significantly high in protein. It is also very filling, making it great for keeping hunger at bay and helping you to stay fuller for longer.
