Ginger & Honey Porridge, a warming autumnal breakfast


Honey 1 (1 of 1)Misty morning’s and frosty starts, autumn is here! I’ve really been feeling the cold the last few mornings but starting my day with Porridge really helps. One of my favourite ingredients of the moment has to be ginger. Not only warming but also great for the digestion, ginger Porridge is the perfect start to the day. I’ve also added honey to the recipe for a bit of ‘get-up-and-go’. I’m finding I really need this on the these dark mornings.

Enjoy this Porridge recipe and enjoy autumn, as aside from the chill, it is a beautiful season.

  1. Great recipe for porridge that I now use every morning. It is so important to have a proper plan for breakfast and such. This simple recipe suits my every need for my beneficial health. And that is so important. It is a wise person indeed, who can use discipline in ones health and not get caught up into eating a breakfast of unhealthy foods and such. We are indeed responsible for our own health. Ginger certainly is a right step in this direction, and its health benefits are great. Just don’t think about it, …. DO IT.

    Great recipe!
    I’ve chopped an apple into the porridge before the cooking oatmeal. Gives a smooth taste…
