When the cold weather sets in it can be easy to forget those healthy eating habits of summer days (no-one's going to see you in a bikini any time soon so there's no need for the strict diet regime right?). Instead of reaching for those tempting buttery croissants, why not opt for a classic winter breakfast: porridge.
If you don't want to spend a fortune in your local cafe each morning, here are some of the British organic porridges which can be found in a supermarket near you. Sweeten it up with berry compote, chopped nuts or stewed fruits, or add cinnamon or plain old honey.
Rude Health 'Morning Glory' Porridge
A great combination of smooth oatmeal, jumbo oats, barley, rye and quinoa flakes, this porridge has sesame, pumpkin and poppy seeds added. All ingredients are wild and not refined, only natural sweet ingredients, and sustainably produced fruits, nuts and seeds. We think Goldilocks would approve.
Pimhill Farm Porridge Oats
Made from oats grown on one of the first organic farms in the country, now run by the third generation of the Mayall family, all of the products are grown in Shropshire without any artificial fertilisers or chemicals. And anyone who recommends to 'add a dash of whisky' to porridge on cold winter mornings are great in our books!
Duchy Originals Organic Porridge
Duchy Originals was launched in 1990 by HRH The Prince of Wales but their story starts earlier - back in the early 1980s The Prince moved to the Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire, and began the process of converting the Duchy Home Farm, which is part of the estate, to an entirely organic agricultural system. The oats and barely porridge is a great addition to your morning routine.
Jordans Organic Porridge
Founded by nature loving, brothers Bill and David, one who also was in a rock band once, the brand is committed to the making the British countryside more sustainable. Full of wholegrain goodness, with no artifical flavourings, colourings and preservatives your brekkie table will shine with porridge from Jordans.
Pertwood Porridge Oats
Carefully grown and milled to ensure that every box is full of premium wholegrain jumbo oat flakes this is a seriously healthy breakfast option from the fields of south-west Britain. This award-winning organic farm is now one of the largest organic farms in the country.
