Porridge with butter

"Healthy porridge is oatmeal, buckwheat, millet, pearl barley, wheat, and other cereals made from unpolished grains, where the preserved grain hull contains many useful ingredients. Such cereals contain complex slow-digesting carbohydrates, vegetable protein, vitamins B and E.
