    Just realised this isn't allowed. I'm guilty of sprinklng a wee bit on my porridge a couple of times, when I've been stuck with the original flavour. (We do this in Scotland..)
    But why is salt disallowed? Is it something to do with water retention?

    Yes, I believe it is to do with water retention. You are free to add pepper to things, obviously no good for porridge :D. Have you tried adding a dash of cinnamon to your porridge? Makes it smell lovely and is allowed ;).

    I usually have my porridge at lunchtime at work, as it fills me up really well. Our canteen has a posh coffee stand and there's cinamon and nutmeg available for people to sprinkle in their coffee. Think I might start stealing some of that.

    Where in scotland are you from? I always had salt and syrup on my (pre Cambridge!) porridge, find the CD porridge quite salty though and always add cinamon, mixed spice or nutmeg for flavour.
