Dr. W’s “Llama Chow” or Beneficial Motivator Cereal
Purchase and keep in dry storage a 50:50 mix of cracked wheat and steel cut oats. You can use a pure cracked wheat, a pure steel cut oats, or any other WHOLE grain. Spelt is delicious and chewy (takes a little longer to cook). Buckwheat avoids gluten. Try them all. You might just end up with quinoa - the grain of the Inca.
To Cook: 1 cups of the above mix of whole grain oats and wheat 3 cups of water (4 cups for buckwheat) (2 cups for quinoa) 1 tsp salt
Simmer for 20 minutes with frequent stirring to prevent boiling over
Set aside: let cool. Place in plastic storage container in fridge.
Lasts 10 days
To Prepare Breakfast
About ½ cup of the above mix Add ~ 1 cup almond, coconut or skim milk (I add ½ cup frozen blueberries) - ORAC score of 3500. LOTS of pterostilbene
Place in microwave and heat about 3 minutes
Add ¼ cup ground flax seed (15 grams extra fiber and tons of omega 3s)
Conclusion: don't get hungry till lunch time. And you have great BMs.
