Porridge

Postby A_Corner_Of_The_Earth » Sun Mar 04, 2007 3:42 pm

My fav breakfast food is porridge. I have it every morning and it fills me up. I usually have 1 Tbsp of honey or 1 Tbsp of raw sugar with it.

I want to cut out the sugar and honey but don't know what else I could use so it doesn't taste like I'm eating glue. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could add for flavouring that is low in kilojoules?

I actually don't mind the taste now as I am used to not sweetening any of my cereals either. However, I used to add a tablespoon of jam. You could use something that has no added sugar or for a really low calorie option get the IXL diet jam. This is about 4calories or something ridiculous like that. It's a bit like diet jelly with reconstituted strawberries in it but it worked for me.

OMG! You have to try this! Jarrah! It is the absolute best!! I usually just cook the oats in the microwave and afterwards stir in a teaspoon (or two :oops: :oops: ) of jarrah choc :P :P :P
I'm addicted to it...
Oh, sorry, you wanted to know how to cut out the calories? Well, Jarrah does have about 50 cals but if you use half a serve then it wont be as bad and you still get the sweet taste. Or you could use Splenda with cinnamon or sultanas?

I actually make it with soy milk and add sultanas.

I know most of you will be saying - eeewww Soy milk, but in porridge it's good, and it's sweeter than normal milk so it helps in cutting out the sugar. You have to use good soy milk though, the cheap stuff tastes awful ummmm I can't remember which brand I use - it's in a purple bottle... I'll let you know later. LOL

Soy Milk...ewww...I remember my uncle made me try some when I was a little kid (I was about 6) it tasted disgusting. Haven't had any since then.

sultanas and LSA make it interesting - you could also try adding other rolled grains to the oats (like barley, rye etc), gives a bit more texture and flavour.
