bob's red mill 5 grain with flax


What about some “Oat” variety?  Well I sometimes indulge in Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Hot Cereal with Flax. It’s a good hearty way to start the day:

1/3 cup dry cereal

2/3 cup water

1/2 tsp Apple Pie Spice (or cinnamon)

1 TBS canned Pumpkin (NOT pie filling)

Now… if you need sweetness, add 1 tsp maple syrup, or honey, or a packet of stevia.  I chopped some apple and added it to my hot cereal.  Sometimes I will add 1 TBS raisins.

Remember .. this is your carbohydrate. So don’t forget protein for breakfast.  Add a protein shake or some soy milk and expect to be totally satisfied for all or at least most of your morning.

* I’m not a nutritionist nor a dietician, but the above recipe works for me. Let me know what you do to make your hot cereal special.
