Default Boring Porridge

http://www.boringfoods.com/

I bought the Coconut Breeze boring porridge recently because it was on sale at Save On and the nutritional data looked quite promising. This was the data based on a 45 gram serving (4 tbsp)
-260 calories
-18gr fat
-21gr Carbs
-11 gr Fibre
-7gr Protein

That was just using water. If you added the suggested 1/2 c milk, those stats would be higher.
Anyway just saying that this stuff tastes pretty darn good and doesn't even need to be cooked; just add cold milk and you're good to go. I ate a double batch (90 grams plus 1c milk) for breakfast on the trail and found it quite filling for a few hours afterward; it was almost too much actually. Nice to see that there is a good nutritional no-cook breakfast option that weighs in at under 100 grams.

Cheaper to make your own and add what you want. I don't drink cowsqueeze so I use orange juice.

Gonna give it a go. They sell it at Superstore in the Wack according to their website.
