I am passionate about porridge. I eat it every day and it is the king of breakfasts.

It is also a malleable breakfast. It's convenient. If your office or home has a microwave you are only five minutes away from a delicious hot meal that will sustain you until lunch and beyond.

I am a porridge samurai. I've been cooking porridge in a microwave practically every working day for the past three years. During this time I have sharpened my sword. Today I would like to share with you my techniques.

Porridge. In January 2013 I ate porridge every morning for breakfast. It started as a holiday thing. I loved it so much that I decided to eat it for breakfast forever. In 2013 I estimate that, out of 365 days of the year, I didn’t eat porridge roughly 20 days. That’s a fairly good innings.

I learned some things along the way.

Heading into work early to dodge the crowds whatever your form of commute, but it can be hard to muster up enthusiasm for a plate of muesli at five in the morning. My solution to this is to have breakfast once I hit the office, and I'm wondering how common an approach that is.
