Yesterday I came across with an article that states the cinnamon is one of the super foods. The laboratory studies show that if people sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon it will reduce blood sugar levels. As we now live with my dad who has a diabetes this piece of info backed up by solid research was quite useful to take on board. Besides it tasted good and Christmassy.
So this morning while cooking the usual oat porridge that can get gruesome, we added some cinnamon and jazzed it up with fruits. Having a child means the latter goes as soon as the red fruits reach home. But on a hot plate of porridge frozen fruits are just a treat too.
So why not to treat yourself to winter warmth and stay healthy too and accompanied with warm vanilla chai latte, bliss!

An oat porridge

My tot loves porridge, how lucky am I? So I cook it not only for breakfast, but for when she feels peckish too. Before throwing stones to my direction, if you know how to cook it, just escape this receipt. Loads of friends asked me a how to step by step to this nation’s favourite breakfast meal.

So here we go.


1 cup oats

1 cup milk

1 cup  water

2 spoons brown sugar

Let your child put them in a microwable dish and let him/ her give it a good stir.

Then put it in a microwave power 800 watts for 4 minutes UNCOVERED.

Once the time ends. Take it out of the microwave stir again and plate it. Let it cool on a plate. As it will keep cooking due to the nature of the microwaves. Once it starts to cool down, serve it with your favourite fruits. My tot chose nectarines today.

Bon appetit! 🙂
