Winter time is a great time for a hot breakfast ...
These days I gravitate toward whole grains. To me, they taste better than refined ones, but they’re also antioxidant-packed and high in fiber. So I was thrilled to discover that Cream of Wheat now is available in a whole-grain variety. This quick morning breakfast is a new favorite of mine. Try it with blueberries and almonds like I have suggested or mix it up with your favorite fruits and nuts. I have also added pureed tofu, which gives a very creamy consistency and adds some morning protein.
