Try as I might to ignore it January always gets under my skin. I know Christmas should be all forgotten about by now but it’s the blissful revelry of the holidays that makes it so hard to back to the real world in the howling weather. For those few weeks of visiting and partying all thoughts of what we should be doing, where we should be living and on and on go out the window. Motivating myself is like pushing a greasy boulder up Mount Everest
Porridge (Oatmeal) for 1
½ cup oatmeal, I like Bunalun Organic best for nuttiness and texture
½ cup full-fat or skimmed milk
½ cup water
Honey to serve or anything you like
Some people cook porridge in the microwave, I do mine in a small, non-stick pot over a medium heat.
Put all the ingredients in the pot and bring to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes, adding more water if it gets too thick
Pour into a bowl, cover in honey, add bananas or anything you want and feel good about yourself.
