You might be thinking that it's far to sunny and hot for an oatmeal start to your day but I've been loving my fruity porridge these past few weeks. Oats are a great source of protein and contain vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin E, Selenium, copper, magnesium and zinc. This breakfast will also lower your risk of developing heart disease by reducing the bad cholesterol (without lowering the good cholesterol) in your body and is proven to fight against IBS and even cancer.

So get your oats in the saucepan and add some milk! Serve into bowl, let cool slightly and then sprinkle a layer of ground cinnamon (which will help stabilise your blood sugar) and add a chopped banana. Add anti-oxidants via fist-sized portions of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, dried cranberries and a handful of goji berries. Repeat after me; 'mmmmmm'.
