Porridge. The Scots absolutely love it, at the Winter races we even had a porridge bar serving the hot stuff.
I know for a fact Cathro, Hutchens, Barnes and Cunningham all live on the stuff. Should you?First off I never even did Chemistry at School, I was a physics man. Therefore before any of you smart arses try and prove some point, I've obviously ripped the nutritional stuff from the Quakers website.
What I can tell you is Winter is coming and down goes the DH bike and up comes the XC beast. Saturday and Sunday mornings out in all conditions grinding the trails for a few hours!
Many of you will be packing the energy bars for sure, though what if you didn't have to? Well read on.
We all know porridge tastes like cardboard yet is pretty good for us. No point having that full English Breakfast before the race/ride as it will sit in your belly for hours trying to digest.

Many everyday foods are made from grains that have been refined. This means that not all parts of the grain are used and therefore you don't get the full benefit of all the nutrients in the grain.
Wholegrain foods use all of the grain so that you get all the goodness. Wholegrains provide a whole package of nutritional benefits, including a good source of insoluble fibre, which can help to maintain a healthy digestive system.
Studies have shown that diets rich in wholegrains have beneficial effects. People with a healthy heart tend to eat more wholegrain foods as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Nutritional Information based on the Golden Syrup flavor serving with 180ml of semi-skimmed milk.
