Antioxidant Breakfast Porridge
Indulge in this amped up antioxidant breakfast porridge. In my house growing up I was actually the only one who enjoyed a good old bowl of oatmeal or porridge, everyday, .... I was slightly obsessed. Oatmeal lover or not, this is a nutritious spin on the classic with a better consistency, which may just sway those haters in the opposite direction.
