I created this yummy hot cereal in the fall of 2014 because I wanted a much healthier, slimming option for a warm, comforting breakfast. It tastes really good and is very easy to cook up in the morning. I like to make enough mix for several servings. It is best to store this in the refrigerator or freezer because of the ground flax seed it contains. Just cook it up like you would oatmeal. Make sure to add salt, or it will taste flat (the secret to good oatmeal too).
The cinnamon is known to be good for your blood sugar levels. Ginger is known to be good for the stomach. The high-fiber content will keep your hunger at bay for a long time, as well as help keep your blood sugar levels steady. We all love this at our house, I think you will too.

I like to serve with a dab of real organic butter, raw honey or agave, organic raisins, and more cinnamon. Top with your desired milk of choice (organic whole milk, coconut milk, almond milk, or seed milk).
Here is what some of the ingredients look like just in case they are new to you.
