As the weather cools down, we start to crave different foods, more warming, comforting foods. As far as breakfast goes for me this means porridge. Although I still eat porridge in the summer, not nearly as regularly as during the colder months. On cold days, I tend to start my day with something warm like this cornmeal porridge instead of my daily smoothie, which is my usual summer routine. I have my smoothie later on in the day during the colder months. Post hot yoga for example.
Like many people, oats are my go to grain when it comes to making porridge. It’s what my grandmother used to make me when I would visit her. I would love waking up to watch cartoons and sit in front of the TV with my bowl of porridge. I would load it with raisins and cover it with milk and white sugar. Needless to say the oatmeal I make for myself today is a little different.
