This month I've had the pleasure of working with Soil Association and Whole Foods Market during their Organic September Campaing. I was asked to take part in the dedicated Organic Pop Up Kitchen at the Kensington Store this past Saturday, along with other #BOOMaward winning brands sampling, food demos by chefs and bloggers. A full day take over by incredible organic ambassadors.
Im therefore sharing the "Chunky Wholesome Organic Porridge" recipe I cooked for you here, you can also find the recipe on Soil Association's website. Porridge can be made in a variety of ways, and its an amazing way to fuel yourself with incredible nutrients to keep you going for hours. Choosing organic ingredients

Why I Choose Organic
Simple, its food as it should be – its natural and it doesn’t interfere with nature. It means I consume fewer pesticides and chemicals, no GM and routine use of antibiotics, and I support animal welfare. For me it makes more sense. Choosing organic is a big step for the food system to protect and respect the biodiversity and ecosystem, it has low environmental impact, contribute to food security, and it enhances human, animal and planetary health.
