The other day I bought a bunch of rhubarb – it was big and a deep crimson colour with contrasting bright green leaves andlooked so fresh I wanted to eat it immediately . I stewed it with some sugar and now have a huge bowlful in the fridge from which I take helpings of to accompany my porridge.
I use real oats (as opposed to the instant variety) and cook them with some dessicated coconut and water (Just 2 mins in the microwave!!). Each morning I pack my oats and coconut mixture and rhubarb and strawberries into little containers to take to work. I also pack whatever leftovers there are for lunch. Today it was leek and pumpkin risotto.
I generally eat my breakfast sometime between 9 and 10. Today I got busy. And then I got hungry. At 10 o’clock I was ready to eat my lunch. Porridge wasn’t going to cut it. I waited till after 11 and heated up my risotto.
Now its after 2pm and I’m thinking about my porridge and rhubarb. I’m having a topsy kind of a day.
