Anyone who knows me well can tell you confidently that I am a creature of habit (they probably don’t need to know me particularly well to establish this fact). This bit of information is also true of my breakfast habits. Since my siblings and I were able to eat semi-solids we have been raised on porridge, maybe that has something to do with living in cold Scotland but who knows. Porridge every morning. We were told that this particular breakfast food was central heating for our bodies.
