We should probably pre-warn you that if you eat your breakfast when you get into the office, then you may want to do a quick pocket-mirror check once you’re done munching this one. A recurring scenario seems to arise mid conversation with coworkers; their gaze lowers slightly and stays there a bit longer than normal…. “Is that a new lipstick?” “Um.. no?” ..Just some very patchy blueberry stains.

Regardless, porridge is our ride-or-die breakfast here at LK because oats are packed full of protein which makes the stuff is ideal for a boost of energy pre or post work out. Toppings are as interchangeable as pizza and it’s much more portable than toast…

Oh! And it’s super quick to prepare…
