Hot cereal is for all of us to enjoy!
My idea of breakfast for Champions! Recently my very pregnant daughter Bella mentioned that her ob-gyn recommended she include more fiber and more vegetable protein in her diet. Always tinkering with the whole gamut of grains, I welcomed the opportunity to experiment, this time setting as my goal, making a hot cereal breakfast that would be at once quick, delicious and nutritious.
I started right in my own kitchen, where I found everything I need, and then some. If my daughter’s enthusiasm and that of everyone who tasted and reported feeling full of positive energy, then I conclude I am onto something great! Needless to add, this included the children as well. I just love the idea of adding a great number of nutrients, fiber and protein, in minutes and for pennies, without the “help” of those dreaded protein bars loaded with soy and whey protein isolates. You will find as I did that this treat would be suitable as part of lunch or dinner on days where you don’t feel like cooking.
Always the perfect place to start, I opened the doors to my pantry and checked out its contents. Dozens and dozens of glass jars, full of every grain imaginable, and neatly labeled (more about this at the bottom of this post). I was on my way!
My hot cereal combination is just my own personal taste.
You can certainly adjust it to your own preferences. You don’t need to mix so many grains, even one or two is enough. I only mixed them to be sure I get the most benefit from them, not only nutritionally, but for flavor. This amount will last you months, so you will spend those few minutes mixing only once in about six months.
Even though I am not a future mom (I am a perennial mom!), and even though I am not running in any marathon, I immensely enjoy the delicious taste, and the welcome energizing feeling it gives me with: Let me know how yours comes out, and how you feel on a day you eat it: I am getting ready to mix another batch soon!
A word on storing grains:
I found out at my own expense, from a long-ago Hitchkock-style invasion of moths which came from an old carton drum box of rolled oats and left me and everyone in my house terrified for days, that moths wholeheartedly share our love for grains, sugar, nuts, raisins and so on, as they easily eat away at the porous paper, plastic or cardboard containers. Hence my obsessive-compulsive habit of storing everything in glass jars! I hope I pass it on to you: good-bye moths, good-bye rancidity!
- 2 cups each: Cracked barley (Gluten-Free: Coarse corn meal), medium granulation Kasha, steel-cut oats, teff, millet, quinoa , brown rice farina.
- 3/4 cup cinnamon powder
- 6 pouches Mixed Berry Levana Nourishments
- 1/4 cup sea salt
Mix thoroughly and store in very clean and bone-dry glass jars. Be sure to label the jars.
Makes 14 cups hot cereal mixture, enough for a good 4 dozen or more servings.
Multiply all ingredients for more servings.
In a medium-small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup of the grain mixture to boil with 1 cup water + 1 cup milk or dairy-free milk such as almond, coconut or rice (if you like your cereal thicker, use less liquid), and a nice handful of raisins: You could use a little maple syrup instead if you prefer, but I do love the way the raisins get plump and sweet during cooking.
Bring the mixture to a boil, then immediately lower the flame to low (so the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the saucepan), and cover. It will be ready in 10 minutes, and will make you two generous servings. Feel free to make more and reheat the next day or two, thinning it with a little more water or milk.
Play with your favorite toppings:
The hot cereal is delicious as it is, but you can make it a larger meal, and top it with your personal favorites: a dollop of plain yogurt, cut fruit, berries, seeds, chopped nuts, chopped almonds, diced apple, raisins, shredded coconut etc
I do not even understand how I ended up here, however I thought this put up used to be good. I don’t know who you’re but definitely you are going to a famous blogger when you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks
Thanks a lot for the helpful post. It is also my belief that mesothelioma has an extremely long latency period of time, which means that indication of the disease may well not emerge until 30 to 50 years after the primary exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, and that is the most common variety and affects the area about the lungs, could cause shortness of breath, chest pains, plus a persistent coughing, which may lead to coughing up maintain.
