The Right Autumn Diet: How to Cook Delicious and Healthy Porridge in 5 Minutes

Porridge is a common food that the body especially needs in the fall. In the fall, the body is in great need of vitamins. Therefore, porridge should be on the menu. Health experts are convinced that this everyday food brings great benefits to the body on the eve of winter and cold snaps.

Porridge is an indispensable source of complex carbohydrates. However, not everyone likes them. And here, experts have found the key to making porridge not only a “forced” but also a delicious food.

Healthy eating expert Laura Filippova advises cooking this dish in a slow cooker. According to her, the cereal is heated not only from the bottom but also from all sides, just like in a “grandmother’s” oven. That’s why it becomes very tasty. Another secret of the porridge is that it should never be cooked for a long time.

“We can cook for three hours, or we can pour boiling water over the grain in the evening. It will swell, and thus the cooking time will be significantly reduced,” endocrinologist Oksana Palladina shares her cooking secret.

But nutritionist Karina Deineko says that buckwheat, millet porridge, or millet and oatmeal are the most valuable. She also advises eating porridge before lunch. At the same time, she warns that people with problems with excess weight or sugar levels should limit them in their diet. Instead, it is better to eat seasonal vegetables and fruits, and nuts.

“Pumpkin, pumpkin seeds are something that should be included in our diet. As well as apples of different varieties,” Palladino added.

According to the doctor, the diet needs foods containing a certain amount of fat. These are egg yolk, and fatty varieties of sea fish, such as herring.

But to prevent respiratory diseases, it will not be superfluous to take sauerkraut, which contains the necessary vitamin C, and lard, which will give a feeling of satiety.
