Doing Time For Porridge!

When it comes to breakfast, it’s well worth the effort and LRG Fitness are massive fans of this breakfast classic.

The beauty of porridge is in its simplicity, and yet this humble oat is right up there when it comes to superfoods. Holding its own against the more exotic sounding pricier alternatives! Porridge makes a great addition to any meal plan or a perfect substitute to an unhealthy snack.

Porridge is the perfect way to start the day and unlike other sugary cereals contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals that your body needs. Eat this breakfast on its own or with fruit added, a dollop of quality peanut butter or maybe some seeds and nuts, either way, the benefits are numerous.

Benefits:

Muscle Recovery – high content of phosphorous helps muscle recovery after exercise

Reduces blood pressure – a daily serving could help improve blood pressure control and reduce the need for anti-hypertensive medication.

Lowers cholesterol – rich in soluble fibre.

Beneficial for pregnant women – source of folic acid.

Great for hangovers – oats neutralise acidity levels in the body.
