Monday Monday. How do you feel today? Were you out for a run, wandering in the mountains, whale watching, swimming in the ocean, and just generally getting out and about in the good weather? Are you back to work fighting fit this morning or did the weekend take it out of you?! Relaxing can be tiring you know! Anybody who started today with a bowl of porridge inside them is probably feeling the benefits of it right now. Slow release energy from oats is one of the best forms of energy to carry you through a busy morning. Oats are a perfect breakfast food, low in fat, high in carbohydrates for that much needed long lasting energy, and a good source of protein. We've got the perfect porridge recipe that will ensure every day finds you up and at it – summer or winter! We highly recommend Irish grown oats like Kilbeggan Organic Oats from Co. Westmeath for this beautiful morning bowl of Porridge, devised by Ed Cooney, Executive Chef of The Merrion Hotel in Dublin, which includes fresh and dried fruit. You can chop and change the fruits to suit the season – especially this time of year when there's a wealth of soft summer berries available. This breakfast special will certainly put a bounce in your step, these summer days!
