Week four and it’s the finale to my ‘Simple Porridge Recipes’ series. This recipe is a real favourite of mine. When I need to be up and out really early, I make it. When I’m out of fresh fruit I find it really handy, and when it’s cold outside the aroma and warmth of the nutmeg makes my morning.
Whilst it is important to eat a variety of fresh fruit and veg too, dried fruit is really handy and still counts as one portion towards your ‘5-a-day’. High in iron, vitamin B and calcium raisins are a little nutrition packed pods of natural sweetness. So healthy and handy, enjoy this simple Porridge recipe.
