Pat Conover: Sharing the Journey
Pat's Porridge

Old Stones by ToniVC

Notes I eat this porridge every morning for breakfast, in part because it is a good place to add two dietary supplements that are important to my health. I think many would profit from adding a heaping teaspoon of ground flax seed, per bowl. My main selling point is that I have not grown tired of eating this porridge, partly because you add lots of different ingredients to the basic ingredients, such as fresh fruit.

I do a lot of our shopping at the Takoma Park Food Co Op on Carroll Avenue and so I buy a lot of the ingredients in bulk. As a result the recipe is more a guideline than a formula. Happy experiments! The cost per ounce is lower than boxed cereal in a grocery store.


8 large scoops of instant oatmeal
2 large scoops of wheat flakes
1 or 2 large scoops of Maple Nut Granola (#3400)
6 slices of dried pineapple that I cut up into smaller pieces.
Unsalted roasted almonds
Ground Cinnamon


Dried Cranberries
Dried Cherries
Dried Turkish Apricots (cut up)
