Scotland’s most famous food, porridge is traditionally stirred clockwise, never anticlockwise, with a straight wooden stick rather than a spoon. Yes, well. This power-packed mix of five different grains and seeds from your nearest health food store will give you so much energy, you’ll probably whizz them as fast as a food processor. Just think risotto: calm down and stir slowly and steadily.
