My morning hot cereal

Gluten free organic hot cereal for all that ails you

Sorry that I couldn’t figure out how to get a photo inserted here from google docs but here’s a link.¬†

Making up my hot cereal for the week. A concoction I fondly call “my gruel”. I vary it by what I have on hand each week but here’s this week’s recipe:
All organic GF ingredients:
1 cup amaranth whole grain
1/3 cup corn grits
1/3 cup whole millet
1/3 cup buckwheat groats
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/8 cup flaxseed meal
1/8 cup chia seed
couple tablespoons of olive oil
1 tbsp raw honey
1 cup blueberries

Heat in 2 cups water and 2 cups Lakewood organic cranberry juice blend – or any organic juice blend)(add more as needed if cereal blend becomes too thick); it will take about 20 minutes on the stove top one you reach a very gently low boil, stirring often. Which is why I only make it once a week and freeze it in individual portions. For me it works best to thaw one portion slightly overnight in the refrigerator and heat it up in the morning (adding more water or juice if too thick). I then pack it in a “soup” thermos to eat leisurely at my desk at work for breakfast.

This recipe is high fiber (think regular!); and high vitamin, low histamine, and no chemicals, preservatives, additives, colorings, flavorings, etc. The variety of grains insures a healthy blend of proteins/amino acids. The amaranth alone is high in fiber (7 g) and protein (8 g), calcium (8 % DV), vitamin B (15% DV)), folate (10% DV), magnesium (30% DV!), iron (20 % daily value) and zinc (10%). With all the other goodies in this recipe, you may not have to eat the rest of the day to get all your vits & minerals, and healthy fats.
