What Makes Porridge A Great Snack?
Despite best intentions, most people will find they struggle to make it from one meal to the next without indulging in a light snack in between.
When people think of snacks, they often think of the unhealthy options (chocolate bars, crisps, etc.), but this needn’t be the case; at Everest, we believe you can indulge in some midday snacks without having to compromise on your diet. Our porridge pots are an ideal snack choice for those looking to keep hunger at bay in a healthy, sustainable manner.
One of the key benefits to porridge oats is the high level of soluble fibre found in them, also known as beta glucan. Once digested, this fibre forms a thick gel-like substance in the gut, which leaves youl feeling fuller sooner and also helps to balance your immune system and lower your cholesterol. Studies (hyperlink: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC32365... ) have also found that regular consumption of this fibre can help to speedy up your metabolism and lower your risk of obesity.
Source Of Fibre
Porridge oats are a complex carbohydrate, which means they slowly release energy throughout and helps to prevent spikes in blood sugar levels thanks to the low glycemic index of oats. Porridge also contains iron which helps to support your metabolism and nourishes your red blood cells.
