Grape Porridge to prevent weight gain?

Share

Grape PorridgeI’m a big fruit fan so I was pleased to read last week that flavonoids, the naturally occurring compound found in fruits, can help to prevent weight gain.

Research published by Harvard and East Anglia Universities suggests that;

Higher intake of foods rich in flavonols, flavan-3-ols, anthocyanins, and flavonoid polymers may contribute to weight maintenance in adulthood and may help to refine dietary recommendations for the prevention of obesity and its potential consequences.

One of the star players in flavonoid fruit line-up are grapes, which made me really happy as I love them, not just as a fruit snack but on Porridge too. In fact ‘Grape Porridge‘ is my favourite Friday recipe so if you want to get healthy why not join me this week with my simple recipe and get that Friday flavonoid feeling!

    I like this recipe, even more now I know it’s good for me 🙂

    Does it matter if I use green or red grapes?

    I’d never thought of putting grapes in Porridge, sounds a little bit strange but if it can help with health I will give it a go.
