What’s old is new again, Old Fashioned Steamed Rolled Oats.
Porridge is back in vogue people
Old fashioned steamed rolled oats cooked into a warm bowl of porridge is old school for sure. But 2018 has seen an enormous surge back to this traditional English breakfast favourite. Who doesn’t love a bowl of hot porridge in the middle of winter? It really wells up many comforting memories for people young and old. I remember out on the farm we had an old wood stove. Mum would cook up a big pot for everyone during winter. And that was the go-to brekky, no questions asked, with a generous spoon of Golden Circle syrup, which I still keep a jar of, albeit plastic these days.
Old fashioned steamed rolled oats is a fabulous energy source for the day. And there are endless ways we have found to present the most delicious and nutritious breakfast oats, thanks to our many Instagram followers.
Some of the favourite toppings to add to a warm bowl of porridge are nuts and seasonal fruits. Also milk and milk alternatives, sweeteners and a whole variety of superfoods.

Happy Fri-YAY 🌻 ending the week with a Breakfast of the champions! I don't understand why is simple food so under estimated sometimes. In case you have no idea, Oats are a superfood too 🖤. High in soluble fibre beta-glucan which has numerous benefits. Due to their fibre content oats are also low GI, helping control bloody sugar levels and aid in digestion. Great source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants it is also higher in protein and good fats compared to other wholegrains. Plus it helps to keep us regular 💩 Bowl of oats porridge mixed with cacao powder, nut milk and a little bit of chia seeds, topped with spiced pear (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cardamom) and peanut butter. For extra protein punch add a tablespoon of Protein powder. #postworkout #healthcoach . . . #healthylifestyle #oats #gf #breakfast #nutrition #recovery #healthyfood #plantbased #gym #foodie #superfood #nourish #fitgirl #eattherainbow #balance #bodyfitness #lovefitness #fitnessjourney #cereal #instahealth #teampixel
