Hello Folks! Welcome to my first recipe of 2015, this porridge with blueberries and almonds.
I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Year.
This tasty blueberry almond porridge is the first in a series of 5 different breakfast porridges for this week! 😀
I’ve always been a huge fan of this traditional porridge and indeed one of my very first blog recipe postings was my perfect porridge recipe.
My photography has come on since then 🙂 so unlike other previous blog photos that I have re-done, I’ve left that one as it is.
Plus there are still some variations in that recipe, as well as the pinhead oatmeal recipe you could try anyway.
I prefer to keep my porridge ingredients to a minimum. That’s why there’s not that many ingredients to this porridge with blueberries and almonds breakfast.
That way I can carry them to work and microwave them there after a gym session.
All my porridge recipes are made with convenience and simplicity in mind but with getting the maximum nutritional benefits, especially after a workout, from the tastiest fruits and nuts.
If you check out the details on the Nutrition Label above you’ll see that one bowl alone of this porridge with blueberries and almonds breakfast is providing you with 51% of your recommended daily dietary fibre plus 34% of daily protein recommendation.
What a great start for your body for the day!
Can you be sure your packaged breakfast cereal looks after you the way this one does?
