With winter upon us it is the perfect to time to experiment and nourish your body with a hearty bowl of hot porridge each morning. Plain old oats can become a little tedious so here are a few varieties to help mix things up.
Dried Fruit Iron Boost Porridge Cook your oats as per usual and in the last minute throw in a handful of raisins and organic dried apricots. Top with some natural yoghurt (optional) and a sprinkling of cinnamon or mixed spice. You can also add a little protein with a spoonful of LSA (ground linseed, sunflower seed and almond) on top.
