Porridge: Have you tried it?
says Sofia on Jun 14th 18 (#820554)
I can get nauseus easily with certain types of food if I keep eating it, and luckily that hasn't happened with the oatmeal.
says Sofia on Jun 14th 18 (#2778309)
Porridge with fruit sauce on it is the best way to start the morning with.

Not a fan of grits, cream of wheat or oatmeal. If any of those are considered porridge, then...no.
My mom eats oatmeal, with blueberries, almost every...single...day.
says Carla on Jun 14th 18 (#2778352)
Don't you have different varieties, like we do? We have all sorts porridges, some of which I hate to guts, but... Yeah.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jun 14th 18 (#2778370)
Yes..all sorts. For me, it's a texture thing.
says Carla on Jun 14th 18 (#2778404)
Oh, that's the reason I was about to make a very sexist and uncensored joke... Oh.. Well... Yeah.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jun 14th 18 (#2778424)
In one hand, i wish you had. In the other hand, im glad you didnt.
says Carla on Jun 14th 18 (#2778425)
Just oatmeal for me. Blueberries have a weird texture ( -_-)
I was told it's good for your cholesterol, so if it's true, it will be good for me.
says Sofia on Jun 14th 18 (#2778805)
Yes, it's one of my favorite foods.
says JanHaskell on Jun 14th 18 (#2778366)
No..I never really liked it.
says DandyDon on Jun 14th 18 (#2778405)
Yep, I like oatmeal. :) In Brazil we call it "mingau" (de aveia) - I don't know if this word is common in Portugal. There is also "mingau de maizena", which I also like.
I might be mistaken, but I've heard that a typical British breakfast includes things like bacon, eggs, sausage... so not very kind on the stomach, I imagine.

The taste seems a lot like "rice baby/kid food" here in Portugal. I remember eating it as a kid.
Yeah, it is. It's a bit heavy for me. I've been avoiding eating "enchidos". If I don't eat it very slowly, I don't feel good after.
says Sofia on Jun 14th 18 (#2778809)
"Nestum" - I've never seen it around here. Apparently Nestlé only sells it in Portugal, and not in Brazil. Discrimination!! :P (jk)
"Enchidos" - Over here, we call them "embutidos". :) Well, avoiding them is probably best for your health anyway. I personally try not to have too much of them.

Yes, I eat it quite often as I like oatmeal anyways. A little butter and brown sugar and it's pretty darn good and good for you. A touch of maple syrup also adds a nice flavor to it.
says Rooster on Jun 14th 18 (#2778499)
Butter sounds interesting. Never tried that.
In Brazil we often use cinnamon as topping for porridges.
says primeiro on Jun 14th 18 (#2778549)
That sounds good too! I eat it a lot for Supper as it doesn't bother my stomach at night.
says Rooster on Jun 14th 18 (#2778554)
Yes and I like it. I don't eat it often though.
says SynysterGates on Jun 14th 18 (#2778511)
The one time I tried oatmeal, I gagged and spit it out. I don't like hot cereals of any kind - grits, oatmeal, farina, Wheatina. In fact, I can't stand the smell either.
says Linnster on Jun 14th 18 (#2778521)
Yes, also savoury dishes like yam porridge to go with veggie stew. Delish!
says Masha on Jun 14th 18 (#2778567)
I thought that they like didnt make it since like the 1800s dude
says TomboyJanet on Jun 14th 18 (#2778595)
Porridge is a mixture of grains and fruits. The taste can be wonderful, depending on what you choose. But you can't make a mix ahead of time because it will mold.
says that_guy on Jun 15th 18 (#2778850)
Yup. And good for cookies.
