According to Wikipedia, "Porridge is a simple dish made by boiling oats (normally crushed oats, occasionally oatmeal) or another cereal in water, milk or both."
Porridge for those who enjoy it is a top-of-the-list source of high-nutrition, low-calorie eating. You have lots of control over the nutrition that it delivers and how it tastes. It's a great way to start the day, getting you going with a high energy macro-nutrient balanced meal that will stick to most people until lunch.
