As previously posted, I hate food waste. Last week, I was able to use bananas for some top-notch banana loaf. Due to my overexcitement at the thought of fresh banana bread, I bought more than necessary, only to be left with mushy bananas for breakfast. The solution? Embrace the bruised and mushy bananas in porridge.
Having vowed to maintain my healthy-eating habits during the bluest month of the year, I am trying to spice up my breakfast game by trying to use oats in varied and exciting ways – hoping that the health kick will be sustained and I can banish those mid-day slumps. Doing some careful research, I happened upon a lot of ‘baked’ oatmeal recipes… with everyone trying to trick themselves that they are having cakes for breakfast.
Exam season is well and truly upon us, involving very early days at the library. Quite dull, yes. Getting up when it’s dark is not at all ideal, but some warm breakfast and a cup of Earl Grey tends to make the experience a little less daunting.
