Porridge is the ultimate winter breakfast staple, as it is deliciously creamy and warm. This porridge is topped with roasted hazelnuts, coconut chips, fresh maple-roasted pears, and dried mulberries. The inclusion of healthy fats helps to prevent feelings of fatigue after consuming porridge, which many people tend to experience.

What nutrients are we talking about?

Oats are incredibly nutritious, and are one of the healthiest grains on earth. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre, protein and antioxidants. They are great for weight loss, lowering blood sugar levels and cholesterol, and reducing the risk of heart disease. They are also anti-inflammatory, and promote healthy gut bacteria. Oats are also classified as a nervine, which means they can calm feelings of anxiety, stress and nervousness, and support a healthy nervous system.
