Porridge offers a number of health benefits when made with whole grains including bolstering heart health, increasing bone mineral density, and reducing the risk of diabetes for an overall correlation with longer life expectancy.

One of the great things about porridge is it is easily customizable. You can add your favorite toppings like berries, nuts, raisins, peanut butter, maple syrup, honey, or anything else you like. You can also adjust the thickness of your porridge by using water, milk, or a combination of the two.
