Breakfast porridge oats with blueberries and maple syrup | Kukskitchen



One of the great habits for a healthy lifestyle is to ' Eat Breakfast every single Day'. I struggle with this. With our busy lifes,  getting kids ready for school in the morning while packing your own lunch, breakfast is one thing that is so easy to skip. I used to think if I skip breakfast that would make my body burn that extra fat since it has been starving since dinner the night before. That is the very reason one should have a healthy breakfast to break-the-fast so your body can move on and not be sluggish and reduce your productivity. they say if you feed your body a good breakfast, it’s going to boost your metabolism; you’ll feel more active, satisfied and fresh to start your day.


Thank you dear friends for being an inspiration in my attempts to eat and stay healthy.

Porridge is an easy to make and easy to experiment with. It is super indulgent and will keep you going until lunchtime.


A few things before we start:

  • For an alternative taste use raspberries and golden syrup.
  • You can substitute water for skimmed milk for an extra creamy taste.
  • I made them in batches and refrigerated for a whole week so I can grab and go.

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
