Non of the shops around where I live sell the porridge I like, only the horrible ground up slop like ready brek. The only time I can really buy it is when I walk by the big supermarket after work, which hardly ever happens as I go straight to the gym and it’d be a detour and a bit of a hassle. I got up early today so I could go on the way to work but now I’m going to be carrying two boxes of oats around with me all day! Also had to buy yoghurt as well because no where near me sells the flavours I like. Haha! I’m so fussy.
Anyways thought I’d share what I have been eating the past few days. I decided to buy some maple pecan cluster things as a special treat. I absolutely love these things but I know I can go a little crazy when I buy them so it’s a once in a while thing.
I thought as they are quite calorific compared to my usual porridge I best weigh it out. Recommended serving was 50g. I poured that in and was extremely disappointed with how much was there! I honestly could have eaten double that. I boosted it up to 75g as I knew it wouldn’t be enough to keep me going.
At the time it was filling but come lunch time I was super hungry! I nearly took my lunch slightly earlier yesterday!
Although they’re a taste sensation nothing will ever beat porridge. It’s definitely my breakfast of choice!
Moral of the story is sometimes its good to weigh things out and actually see what a portion is. I pretty much always weigh out pasta now because if there’s a massive overflowing plate of pasta in front of me I will demolish the whole thing :P
