    Hi, can we add spices or ground black pepper to the soups etc. Can you add nutmeg/cinnamon to the porridge? What about a tiny amount of coccoa powder?

    Yes, you can add pepper. Not salt though. You can also add a little chilli powder, or mixed herbs (preferably fresh otherwise check ingredients). You can have up to 1g a day in curry powder with caution. If you do find that any of the above cause hunger, stop immediately.

    Most should be fine. The curry powder can cause a problem in a very few people.

    You can add cinnamon and nutmeg too. Though most people would consider cinnamon to be for sweet dishes/meals, I often add it to savoury dishes. Love the stuff.

    Mmm I add cinnamon to the original porridge... but found out last week about the apple and cinnamon flavour porridge so my cinnamon is now redundant :D xx
