Living Oat Cereal - Try this for breakfast

Sprouted Raw Oat Cereal

This is definitely different than cooked oatmeal but it has it's own charm. Sprouted oats have the advantage of being very digestible. It is a great idea to consume more raw foods, especially sprouts, the cute little power houses that they are.

Chia seeds are all the rage now. You could add a couple teaspoons of chia, and if it sat a while, it would thicken your cereal.

Be brave. try this living cereal.
