A wholesome home-cooked porridge is a perfect wake-me-up at breakfast time. DESIblitz has some brilliant homemade porridge recipes you must try.
Anything that incorporates dessert is a winning meal for us
The age old mantra that breakfast is the most important meal of the day rings true even today.
In fact, research tells us that breakfast is best served within 30 minutes to an hour of waking up. In general, breakfast before 10 am is a good rule to live by.
This is because the body’s energy levels, including blood sugar, are at their lowest, and require a nutritious boost for the busy day ahead.
Porridge remains one of the most satisfying and filling meals to have at the beginning of the day, and it will kickstart your metabolism.
But to liven things up for your morning snack, DESIblitz presents some of our favourite recipes around, that are both nutritious and healthy.
Baked Apple and Cinnamon Porridge
Anything that incorporates dessert is a winning meal for us. The Bakes Apple and Cinnamon porridge is an indulgent treat for early risers.

Creamy Custard and Egg Porridge
Egg is a great for adding protein to your porridge oats. A filling meal for any individual, this brekkie will last all the way until lunchtime.
These delicious porridge recipes are guaranteed to make the rest of your day go wonderfully.
If you don’t have time to make porridge in the morning, then you can prepare the night before and store in the fridge.
Remember, a good, healthy breakfast is vital for a happy, well-balanced lifestyle.
