Buddha Says to Eat Your Porridge

More practical advice from the Budda:

There are these five benefits in rice porridge. What five? It still hunger, dispels thirst, settles wind, cleans out the bladder, and promotes the digestion of the remnants of undigested food. These are the five benefits of rice porridge.

-from Anguttara Nikaya 5.207, Bhikkhu Bodhi
