Actually, as much as I hate summer coming to an end and the days getting colder and shorter, the one good thing is I can start eating porridge again. It is not something I ever eat in summer, but there is something comforting about a bowl of steaming porridge on those cold foggy mornings. Plus rolled oats have a double benefit of being high in fibre as well as helping ward off coronary artery disease which I am genetically linked to. Dad had a heart atack at 48, as did 2 of my cousins on his side. Both his siblings died at early ages of heart disease and most of the cousins have high cholesterol. So I was very pleased to see the latest research showing how good rolled oats are in helping prevent this. At the moment as we have an abundance (and that is an understatement!!) of feijoas so I top my porridge with fresh feijoas, a dash of trim milk and an ever so slight sprinkle of brown sugar. Yum!!
