Did any of you ever watch the Fast Show comedy sketch show on the BBC ? Do you remember Jesse’s Diets? A quick look on the BBC’s website or on You Tube will get you up to date. Well, in the words of Jesse – this week my kids have mostly been eating … porridge! Yep, I am talking porridge being demanded for breakfast, after school snack, dessert and also instead of dinner one night. I am not sure where this has come from, but I figure as I also get to add things like bananas, blueberries and raspberries to it, it is not that bad for them.
Any problems? Apart from keeping up the stocks of gluten free porridge in the house. Luckily, as Mr Fifi Friendly works super close to Real Foods in Edinburgh, he has was sent out on an emergency mission one lunchtime to save us from being in a house with no porridge ……. gasp! I think we will be sending him out more! He came back with Gluten Free Porridge Oats from Alara.
I had never heard of Alara before, but was impressed by their gluten free, wheat free, suitable for coeliacs, Zero Waste, Organic and Fair Trade Certified pure oats. These tasted great. Very easy to make. In fact really quick to make in the morning before heading out to school. We don’t tend to have leisurely breakfasts before school in this house, but this took less that 3 minutes to make! Great start to the day.
