57. Recipes // Autumn Porridge

Today I'm going to talk about porridge. 

Yes, porridge. The underrated, unappreciated super-food. 

I'm trying to eat healthier at the moment as my confidence with my appearance is pretty much rock-bottom currently, so I've been trying out some new recipes for low-fat, filling breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and I came up with a really tasty breakfast yesterday which I wanted to share.

I'm a massive fan of Chai tea (in case you didn't already know...) and I've incorporated it into numerous recipes - now even including porridge! I'm not keen on porridge on it's own but, at the same time, I didn't want to fall into the trap of pouring syrup, sugar or honey all over a 'healthy breakfast' and completely ruining it, health-wise.

So, instead, I decided to bulk my porridge up with fruit and add some flavour by using the contents of a Chai tea bag. I know it sounds odd, but it's honestly super tasty and reminds me of Autumn which is why it's called...

Autumn Porridge

50g of porridge oats
200ml of semi-skimmed milk
1/2 a Chai tea bag
1/2 an apple

1. Chop the apple into small cubes,
2. Measure out your ingredients and put everything in a pan,
3. On a low temperature, simmer your porridge until desired consistency,
4. EAT IT. Eat it all.

So if you're in need of a quick, simple yet nutritious breakfast, try this. I promise, it tastes better than it looks.

Lots of Love,
Becci xo
