Lately I'm enjoying Bob's Red Mill "Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal," consisting of whole brown rice, buckwheat, corn, and sorghum. It's the consistency of grits and needs to cook longer than old-fashioned oatmeal. I cook 1/4 cup in a cup of unsweetened, unflavored almond milk in my very small Le Creuset (heavy iron) saucepan with a couple grinds of sea salt and 1 Tbsp each dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, ground golden flax seeds, hemp seeds, and organic half & half. It tastes rich and, for cereal, is filling, and, er, keeps you regular ;-) I enjoyed mine this morning with some dark French roast coffee and a cup of 100% carrot juice. And my supplements.

I also like oatmeal cooked in almond milk with grated apple, a few raisins, and a pinch each of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and sea salt. Yup, it;s like pumpkin pie, and no sweetener needed in addition to the fruit.

I'm also making crustless quiche these days, cut into 6 wedges, it makes a lot of quick, 30-secs-in-the microwave-while-blithering-in-the-kitchen breakfasts. My husband loves it, too. And we don't miss the crust, which I used to think was my favorite part of quiche.
