I Will Do Oat To Save A Penny Or Two

Sainsbury's Organic Porridge Oats
Advantages: high quality scottish organic oats
Disadvantages: A bit on the dear side
Ive been listening to the local radio station this morning and the Weather forecast is really cheery!
It seems as though Great Britain is set to freeze for the next few days, so any New Year revellers had better dress up warmly.
A good breakfast prepares us well for the day ahead but everyone's idea of a good breakfast is completely different.
Hubby loves a rasher or two of bacon with an egg and some hot buttered toast. In the Winter months I like to start my day with a bowl of hot porridge.
The best oats are always grown is wetter climates, so its not surprising that Scotland supplies us with some first class oats.
Good quality oats produce top notch porridge, but as the credit crunch takes hold most of us are heading off in the direction of the supermarkets own brand counters to try and save a penny or two.
Sainsbury`s Organic oats cost me £1.18 for a 750g packet, so if my budget will allow I am happy to pay that amount, but there are times when I look to cut right back and 750g of Tesco's own Scottish Oats cost me about 60p, so that's a big difference.
There are two ways of looking at it, double the money buys you top quality organically produced plump oats that cook well or for half of the price you can have a very respectable bowl of porridge which maybe doesn't have quite the same texture but is still full flavoured and very good to eat.
I microwave my porridge as it saves having that messy saucepan to clean out afterwards.
A scoop of oats with a mug-full of milk (or water if you prefer) added to them put into a bowl and then popped into the microwave for a minute or two turns out a creamy porridge.
Everyone has their favourite toppings, some like syrup or fruit, I prefer just a sprinkle of brown sugar and a little bit more milk.
Raw Sainsbury`s Organic oats have a good `puffy` look to them, when they are cooked you can feel that `puffy` texture of the oats as you eat the porridge.
I cant say that Sainsbury`s Organic Oats `look` any different to any others when they are cooked because they don't.
Sainsbury`s Oats are very friendly, vegetarians and vegans can safely eat them.
But due to the way that the oats are manufactured they aren't suitable for anyone with a wheat gluten allergy.
The oats are high in fibre and are 100% Organic.
A 45g serving contains 172 calories (before you add anything else) 2.3 fat, 0.8 Saturated fat, 0.9 sugars and 0.1 salt.
Once I have opened my pack I store them in an airtight container, that way they keep for ages.
Oats are versatile, there are so many good recipes about for flapjack, cookies and oatcakes.
Sainsbury`s Organic oats taste good, if you have no worries about the weekly shopping bill then they are a great buy, but maybe as times are getting that bit harder at the moment Tesco offer a good alternative.
Summary: They make a great bowl of winter porridge
