Just remember to try not to make it too thick - experiment with amounts of water / amounts of PH.

It's an acquired taste / texture ... some people don't get on with it (I personally love it). Hope you find the right balance and find it more enjoyable next time.

PS
I had my first banana & cinnamon porridge the other day ... YUM!

Tried it for the first time yesterday and nearly choked by the end it turned into glue:eek:

However today I made hot vanilla with 250 mls and added i dessert spoonful and stirred. It was just like ready brek a little thin so tomorrow I will add a tiny bit more.

I really really like it and it was so filling.:)

Hot toffee and walnut is my favourite shake so I will try that tomorrow.

They say try Fibre 89 in the first instance, however, PH is fine as long as you stay within the recommended amounts:)
Sorry to sound cynical but they're bound to say try Fibre 89 in the first instance .... ;)

Also, the recommended amount of PH on the tub is designed for people already getting a degree of fibre from their normal diets ... I can't see how an extra couple of teaspoons can make much difference (epecially as they're carb and cal free and totally indigestible).

However - nice to know the bods at the top have given the thumbs up :)

What a co-incidence I was gonna just ask about the recommended levels.

I tried some and it was gross, but then I cracked it and have beautiful vanilla porridge. I cant do it with soup at all. Even just using a little.

Anyway, how much is ok to have? I only started having it 2 days ago, but I feel bloated...

CD I think were saying Fibre 89 is used as a preventative - however, you cannot make porridge with it:D

On the pack I have it recommends on heaped dessert spoon per day which is 10 grammes.

I suppose we all differ. I have stuck to what it says just in case:eek:

We're all different artemis and it's just a case of experimenting until you find the right level for YOU. For some, that's just a couple of teaspoons a day - for me, I have anything from two to four dessertspoons (2 as porrige and 2 in soup). That works brilliantly for me but may be too much for others.

If I were you, I'd probably stick to just a dessertpoonful to start with and adjust it up or down once you can guage how effective it is. :)

Thanks Russian Doll. Im so loving the vanilla porridge!!
Going to try Chocolate this morning.

One of the best things I find is that I split the pack and have 1/2 for breakfast (usually not a big need time for me) Its so good to have something hot in the morning!!

Reminds me of when I was little.

Ok guys sounds convincing so where can I buy these husks and what are the proper name for them?? Are they expensive - god I sound such a novice at this lark!! Have just had a truffle and it was dilicious - what a lovely evening treat!
Here's the cheapest place to get them at the moment Mandz. They are called PSYLLIUM HUSKS ... the website below has a bit more info on them. If you need any more info then please feel free to shout :)

It arrives really quickly from Healthspan-two days to me and I live on the Isle of Wight. I had stupidly bought the capsules before but this is much better and you can put in your porridge what you like. I do find though, that I can't get through the entire bowl, so have made half sachets instead

hi all,

Reading all these with interest. :) Can someone tell me how to make the porridge please. I like to try different things and this one is new to me.

Thanks!
