Did you know that some people take a spoonful of argan oil a day as a suppliment? As well as it being proven argan oil significantly lowers cholesterol, it is also full of anti-oxidents and esential fatty acids. Porridge is a great way to enjoy your argan oil and get your spoonful a day. Simply prepare you porridge as normal and add some walnuts as well as dried figs or dates. Then drizzle argan oil over the top and mix before eating. The nuttiness of the argan oil really compliments the walnuts and the dried fruit means no sugar is necessary. Simple idea but a delicious way to start the day!
