    Hello :)

    Im thinking of changing my breakfast's coz starting to get a bit bored of the same thing most days - fruit and yogurt.

    So would like to know about porridge please. What brands are free/synned/hex's? I dont have my book at the moment so have no idea and would appreciate info from anyone who takes porridge and would know.

    Thanks in advance :)

    the oats so simple original sachets are the exact amount of your heB. Or basic porridge measured out (28g) the flavoured stuff is not a heB unfortunately

    as long as its basic porridge oats, with nothing added, it can be a heB x

    Those sachets are perfect. I just add a banana to bulk it up. I also add sweetener and cinnamon for a nice sweet taste

    if you are familiar with Kelloggs All Bran, they are basically pieces made up with that kind of bran. A bit like a really hardcore version of ryvita... lol. Its not to everyones taste but I quite like them with a banana smooshed over it. And I've also heard of people breaking it up and mixing it with their porridge, softens it up x

    I buy normal porridge oats and use 28g each day. If you get a pack of the square, nesting lunches from paperchase the smallest one holds pretty much the right amount so you can get away without measuring. Lakeland did a pack of 10 mini plastic boxes and one of those holds dead on 28g.

    I make my porridge with water then add frozen blueberries and vanilla yogurt. Lovely stuff!
