I like to start my day with a really nutritious breakfast. I need something that will keep me going until lunchtime and stop me from reaching for the biscuit tin by elevenses. In the summer that’s usually a smoothie but in the winter months I fall back on cereals. The Rude Health range of breakfast cereals certainly fit the bill, but how do they taste?
Rude Health produce a big range of cereal, museli and porridge. Their packaging is distinctive and quirky and they use premium ingredients. One of the co-founders of the company is in fact the World Porridge Champion so I was expecting a lot from their 5 Grain 5 Seeds Porridge. They also make a great range of plant based milks that are well worth trying.
The packet instructs you to soak the porridge mix overnight in a mix of milk and water. The resulting porridge is thick and protein enhanced from the Quinoa and seeds. It tastes nutty, although there’s no actual nuts in it. This comes from the 5 seeds which retain their bite even after soaking. For my personal porridge tastes I also added a sweetner trying out mashed banana, agave syrup and Sweet Freedom Choc Shot and they all worked really well as did a blob of peanut butter. I’m happy to report that it kept me going right through to lunch, no problem.
