Organic Oat Bran Cereal

Many people choose to eat processed cereal out of a box.  The truth is that all of those cereals , including some GMO oatmeal cereals are unhealthy for you.  Never eat processed foods!   I read once that 'Eating the cardboard box is healthier than eating processed breakfast cereal'.

This is my homemade recipe for Organic oat bran cereal, even if you dislike oatmeal, oat bran is creamier and has wonderful health benefits.

Ingredients:  (one serving)

1 1/4 cup spring water
1/2 cup organic oat bran
1/2 tsp. ceylon cinnamon ( cassia cinnamon like McCormicks is toxic)
 pinch of sea salt
1 tsp. homegrown honey, or raw honey

Bring water and salt to a boil.  Stir in all ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium-low.
Stir in additional ingredients once you reduce the heat:   

1/4 cup organic blueberries
1/4 cup organic goji berries ( a superfood)
1/2 organic banana (sliced)
1/4 cup chopped organic walnuts or almonds
1/4 cup organic raisins

or:  Your favorite combination!

Cook for approx. 2 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed.  Turn off the heat and cover.  Let stand about 1 minute.

Spoon cereal into a bowl and for an added treat...pour a small amount of organic Coconut Milk (French Vanilla) over the cereal to cool.
