Anti Inflammatory Cereal – The Super Power Breakfast

Anti Inflammatory Cereal - The Super Power Breakfast

Alas, a delicious anti inflammatory cereal that I have officially termed┬á“The Super Power Breakfast” ­čÖé

As mentioned in my previous post, Anti Inflammatory Breakfast Ideas, you can alternate the grains/flours for a porridge version. Or, eliminate the grains all together, and choose whichever fruit, nuts/seeds and super foods you like!

I’ll share 2 foundational anti inflammatory cereal recipes, one with grains and one without. Make any adjustments you like ­čÖé

I’d love to hear which variations you try and which ones you like best! Also please share any anti inflammatory cereal ideas you have discovered as well!

Note that the cereal with grains is more of a hot cereal (as you are cooking grains/flours). Conversely, the cereal without grains can be either hot or cold. This depends on whether you decide to warm up the milk and other ingredients.

Anti Inflammatory Cereal –┬áThe Super Power Breakfast with Grains

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup of your favourite grain/flour (options: oatmeal, oat flour, kasha, buckwheat flour, brown rice, brown rice flour,
  • quinoa, quinoa flour, amaranth, amaranth flour, you get the drift…..)*
  • 4 prunes
  • handful of berries (I use blueberries and goji berries)
  • a fruit
  • 2-3 tbsp seeds (pumpkin/sunflower)
  • 1/4 cup nuts (I use walnuts, omit of course if you have a nut allergy)
  • 1 tbsp flax
  • 1 tbsp chia
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup dairy free milk**
    optional: cinnamon, cardamon, nut/seed butter, additional fruit (e.g. sliced pears, apples, raisins etc.)—-

*If you are using oats, try to get gluten free oats if possible as oats are often contaminated with gluten. Also, do soak brown rice over night if you are using that as your grain.
**Dairy free milk include: soy, almond, rice, hemp

Directions

  1. Optional: Soak prunes, nuts & seeds overnight (makes them easier to digest).
  2. In the morning add water and grain/flour in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. If you are using a flour, make sure to whisk the water and flour together right away or else it will get clumpy
  3. Turn down and simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring/whisking every 2 minutes, adding more water when needed. If you are using grains, cook accordingly – they usually take a longer time to cook than the flours.
    Aside: I almost never use brown rice for this as it takes way to long to cook.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and enjoy!
