Pimp your porridge

Oats are a great source of slow release energy making porridge a great breakfast for marathon runners and dieters alike. Here’s how to keep your morning bowl of glow interesting and tasty too…

Sticky sesame banana

Sticky sesame banana

Naked porridge

I always make my porridge by roasting the oats in the pan first, and then adding full fat milk and a dash of water (milk and nut milk alternatives add protein to help slow the release of energy further). Personally, I find water only porridge looks and tastes like wallpaper paste – food should be enjoyed, not endured.  You may notice a lot of these recipes contain cinnamon – this is because it is a great natural sweetener  especially if you invest in a cheap coffee or spice grinder. (I’ve got a James Martin Spice Grinder, £14.50)

Sticky sesame

Slice a banana and coat them in sesame seeds. Now dry fry the slices in a frying pan, taking care that the seeds don’t catch and burn. Once golden, add to your porridge. You can make it stickier by adding maple syrup although this adds calories.

Carrot cake


Sounds strange, looks odd, tastes lovely.Grate a peeled carrot, add some sultanas, squeeze a fresh orange over it and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve on top of the porridge.



Cinnamon figs and flaked almond

For this, you need deliciously ripe figs with that lovely vibrant, dark mauve colour. Wash, top and quarter. Meanwhile dry roast some flaked almonds, take them out the pan and while they are still hot, sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve.

Cacao and roasted hazelnuts


Cacao, essentially the ‘raw’ version of chocolate is an acquired taste (and an expensive one at that) so you may wish to use chocolate powder although this does contain sugar so if you’re dieting, watch out. First, dry roast the nuts in a frying pan taking care not to burn them. Make the porridge with the cacao or chocolate powder in. If using cacao you may wish to add a dash of maple syrup for sweetness.

Grated apple, pecan and cinnamon

Grate the apple, roast the pecans and add together with the cinnamon. I prefer mine served on top but some people like stirring it through the porridge.

Summer salad

No time to cook? That’s no problem because ‘cooking’ healthily actually takes less time than going out to buy something.

This delicious, summery salad takes less than 15 minutes and can be used as a side dish for four alongside grilled meat or fish, or as a main for two poeple.


150g radishes, halved

Bulb of fennel, sliced

200g of asparagus, trimmed

Juice of one orange mixed with 1 dsp of olive oil

For the dressing

1/2 red onion, chopped

2 tbsp baby capers

Freshly chopped dill

Juice of one orange and lemon

Salt and pepper

How to make

Dress the vegetables with the oil and orange mix, and place on a hot griddle pan. Grill on both sides, ensuring they get a nice griddle effect.

Meanwhile, combine the ingredients for the dressing. Once cooked, dress and serve.

Delicious with white fish such as sea bream or sea bass.
