Default Porridge (Oats)

This is easily becoming my favorite breakfast food lately. Seems like you can do pretty much anything with oats. Yesterday I made Coconut porridge with almond butter and raspberries. My breakfast today was porridge "Indian" style: tomatoes, onions, indian spices. Topped with two poached eggs and bacon. Delicious.

Any porridge fans here?

I myself prefer Cream of Wheat or some might say it's similar to Grits just add some melted butter to it some might put sugar on it i don't believe i do that myself though.

I eat oats a lot. Love 'em. Either porridge or 'overnight oats'. I'll eat them anytime I'm hungry really.

Favourite is overnight oats. I put around 100-120 grams in a jar, add some milled chia, couple chopped dates, some walnuts, then add water. Leave for a couple hours to soak then top off with some frozen bluberries and mango

Love em. Have two bowls a day. Like the above poster I soak mine for several hours or overnight. Have to be good quality whole oats though and not the cheap crap. Makes a big difference. The possibilities are endless with what you can do but right now I just have some cinnamon and vanilla drops

For sure. I stay way clear of that dusty stuff some manufacturers call oats Also steel cut, dislike those. Here in the UK my preference is Tesco's organic oats. They're just steam pressed hulled oats. Make for a lovely creamy porridge.

Not tried Tescos organic however the best I've had are Aldi's organic oats which go for 1.50 for a 1kg bag. However it was getting pricey the amount I eat so I've settled for GoNutrition's Whole porridge oats which work out at 1.10 a kg when they are on offer (currently are). Those are the second best I've had

But yeah, those fine oats are rubbish unless you plan to drink it

I stopped eating cereal and switched to oats. 1/3 cup of old fashioned rolled oats (I think they're close to organic oats in the UK, although there are also organic old fashioned oats) + 1 cup of milk + 1 cup of water, boiled in a non-stick pot. Plus 4 to 6 ounces of berries. Plus a bit of honey and brown sugar.

Perhaps I'm eating too big of a serving of oats and berries, but I can't finish anything else with them, even an egg or two.

I'll have to look in Aldi. Tesco's are 1.60 for 750grams.

Where do you purchase your GoNutrition oats from?

Is there such a thing as 'too big a serving of oats'?

Possibly.

Rolled oats here are $1.00 a pound or $.70 on sale (on offer, never heard of that British term before) from the bulk bins. I stopped putting a price on health though, trying to cut down on weight.

I really need to try these overnight oats. That said, I'm enjoying some bacon & cheddar cheese porridge.

Price wise they sound about the same. Not a lot in it.

I'm the same with food now. Nothing is really too expensive when it's good stuff. When I consider the kind of things I could easily spend money on food becomes a cheap luxury.

Overnight oats are a winner! Especially the sweet kind. Don't forget the dates!

Not so sure about that savoury combination though... the thought of cheese and oats is not something I would like to entertain. Taste certainly is subjective

Go on the sale part and search the oats on offer

It's worth a try. I thought it was very good. The melted cheese actually added more flavor to the oats. Here's the recipe:

I'd prefer oats over cereals and granola. It's easy to digest for me and doesn't make me feel bloated at all.

Maca powder is awesome. Gives yoghurt and other foods a caramely taste. By itself it's not very clever though
