Ready Brek Versus Porridge
Is readybrek the same as eating porridge??Posted 5 years ago
I cant stomach porridge as i always seem to make it lumpy and i dont know whether to chew it or swish it round my mouth.. in fact it almost makes me retch and i cant eat it.
Readybrek on the other hand is all smooth.. ready in 90secs and skiffles straight down the hatch.
But is readybrek as good energy and nutritionally wise??
Is it just much finer oats??
Plus ready brek has some added vitamins for my childlike brain.passtherizlaMember
Smush: to mash with blunt object (spoon or stirring device).
I get a mug, half fill it wih oats, empty in to pan, half fill the same mug with milk top off with water,put. On heat. KEEP STIRRING. When it starts to thIcken *smush* a banana in and keep stirring, until you think it’s ready, usually about 3 mins in total.Posted 5 years ago
I think my porridge making has been to rushed in the past so i dunno.. its just sort of always seemed to have that sick consistency to it and i end up chewing it. Ready brek on the other hand with small handful of raisins, some chopped dried mango and 1/2 spoon honey i can shovel down no problem.Posted 5 years ago

Microwave makes it a lot easier and cleaner – cook it in the bowl. Not a problem putting too little liquid in – I blast it for 2 minutes then stir – if its a bit dry I stir a bit more milk / water in then do it for another 30 seconds.
Its very nice and creamy with milk, but if you add honey and dried fruit (raisins are good) the difference between making it with milk and water is insignificant.
I use Scott’s oats, but only started eating it a few months ago. May try quaker next.Posted 5 years agodabbleMember
59p per kilo of morrisons finest value oats.
Cinnamon and sugar OR banarnarnar to taste.
Nutrition wise there is minimal difference unless you count the extra vit d reddy brek has. Protein is 11.7g in both, and within a couple of g’s for fat and carbs.
Just depends on whether your a bit of a wuss or not.Posted 5 years agoOmar LittleMember
I once choaked on a lump of something in ready brek and that has put me off it for good. Wasn’t a lump of compressed oats either, was properly minging and makes me want to throw up just thinking about it.
Used to like Pawridge but now they only seem to offer the individal sachet version which is too expensive compared to a box. For some reason every other type of microwave porridge seems to explode in my microwave 😀Posted 5 years ago
