The Benefits Of Eating Porridge.

                                                       This is not a sponsored  post.





 Since I was young I have eaten Porridge for breakfast, coming from an Italian household  it was a very odd thing to do, my Father would never touch it, but my Mother used to love it and used to make us hot bowl of it before we went to school, especially during the Winter months, we  would happily skip along  to school and endure the cold British Winter's.   As I got into my late teens it was no longer cool to eat it, in fact I don't think I ate breakfast for years, as I got older and my body was shouting feed me first thing in the morning I started to realise the value of nutrition, and started eating my childhood bowl of porridge again.
   First thing in the morning before the day has officially begun I go and grab a bowl and some skimmed milk my oats and blast them in the microwave with a little touch of sugar and I am set up for the day.   Gone are the days when I used to use a saucepan and stirred and stirred, I now blast mine in the microwave, I can tell if I don't have my porridge fix, I feel so hungry by midday. Go on do yourself a favour and try a bowl it's so quick and easy and you won't look back.

Here is a list of why porridge is so good for you.

High in fibre

Lowers  cholesterol

Lowers blood sugar

Reduces constipation

Protection against skin irritation

Lowers blood pressure

Boost bone mineral density

Helps prevent heart disease and some cancers.



Tips for your porridge oats.

Fruit is so good, I like banana's but any fruit is good.

Try putting a little syrup or honey in your bowl

You can also add  them in your smoothies 

Or if you have problem skin, add them to your bath water for smooth skin.

A little like Muesli, I love that too, but my fillings do not. LOL
I absolutely love porridge, especially in the Winter and it's so good after a workout when you're feeling super hungry. I usually use the little instant packets at work that you add milk to and microwave, there's a cinnamon flavoured one that I love at the moment. It's great to know that there's so many benefits to eating porridge because I love it! Especially with lots of fruit added to keep me full for ages.

Yes I can tell when I am given supermarket pasta I am afraid you can't fool me.  Somebody who shall remain nameless was supposed to put it neatly in the Pasta Cupboard, and this is how I found it ...........................…

Ten Things I Hate.

In life you can not be happy go lucky  everyday, everyone and I mean everyone has a day where multiple things go wrong, and by the evening you just think my God anything else today.
    So I have compiled a list of  ten things that get's  on my absolute nerves I am very sure most of you have one...............

1   When you are parked in the car park and two big vans park either side of your vehicle so close  so you can't  get back into your car, Oh yes this has happened to me.

Why I Hate Love Island.

Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…
