In a previous blog I began the topic of why we gain weight and how it is far more complex than just eating too much and exercising too little. So if gluttony and sloth are not the problem, what is it about the world today that makes achieving and maintaining a healthy weight so difficult?
My favourite porridge
Although I tend to change with the seasons, I am happy to have much the same breakfast each day - this has been my favourite over winter. It includes the easy baked pears featured last week and is so good it is enough to get me out of bed on a cold winter’s morning. The bonus is that it gives me such a head start on nutrients for the day; fibre from oats, omega 3 fats from walnuts, antioxidants from blueberries (great for the brain and much needed!) , all the selenium I need in a day from the brazil nuts, ginger for digestion, calcium from the milk……. the list goes on! If you love porridge, you will love this “posh” version!
