What Are The Benefits Of Eating Porridge?
For a start, we don't get enough fibre in our western diets, however a single bowl of porridge will actually offer you more fibre than a slice of wholemeal bread (without the guilt of eating bread). Spiking your insulin levels is a natural reaction when having something high on the glycaemic index, however this isn't the case for oats, which provides you with long lasting energy. Oats are also high in zinc, iron and magnesium, plus B vitamins, making this one of the most healthy breakfast options available to you. They're also shown to lower cholesterol levels if eaten regularly, while they're also high in antioxidants, which help to fight off free radicals, which damages your DNA and causes ageing.
Should I Use Water Or Milk?
This completely depends on you. Milk will often make the porridge taste nicer, however it's also a higher calorie option, so if you're on a diet then you might want to consider trying it with water, or a skimmed milk. While milk might provide a few extra calories, that isn't necessarily a bad thing, with plenty of calcium and benefits to drinking milk, especially for children.
