    it helps with digestive transit - potentially

    it could stop any problems from arising or cure any blockages :D....

    put 2 tbsp oatbran to 1 wheatbran in your porridge...

    p.s. the 6 minutes is because I like mine thick :) reduce if you like it "thinner"...

    can also use the wheatbran in jo's muffins and the galette I think - though haven't made them for a while! :) Hope it's nice for you :)

    What time do you guys eat your breakfast? I leave home at 7.15am so no way would I be making porridge - and being able to swallow it - 1/2 an hour before that!

    aaah so you too exercise before eating (something some of my friends tell me I shouldn't do... but no chance of getting me to swallow food early in the morning!).

    I'm up by latest 6am... feed cats... shower... preen... make up on while on computer reading news, weather etc with a cuppa... out at 7.15am. Arrive here 8.15am ish... Breakfast rarely before 10am. Just can't swallow it.

    Get home at 6.30pm if no shopping to do... so dinner never before 7.30pm.
