Breakfast of Champions - Cereal
Admission: Fondue Voodoo hasn’t always been a culinary snob. Breakfast for young Voodoo consisted of children kibble from the big yellow box or toast & the whiz of cheese.
I’m not knocking cheese from a jar or children kibble, it did enough to get me to school where I promptly discovered how to avoid being caught counting on my fingers, singing the entire alphabet to recall what came after H and develop coping skills to deal with a crippling fear of left vs. right.
Since those development years I’ve learned the best part of breakfast is coffee, and may have done better on the multiplication tables had I had a cappuccino in me to start. But coffee isn’t enough to make it through the day, try this cereal that should help bolster the confidence, fill the belly and clear the brain, although left and right is still a mystery to me.
1 c chia
1 c hemp seeds
1/2 c buckwheat grouts
1/2 c quinoa flakes
1/2 c bran flakes
1/4 c flax meal
2 TBSP cinnamon
1/2 c nuts
1 cup raisins
1/2 c chopped dried apples
Serve 2 TBSP of cereal with either milk, almond milk, yogurt or hot water with fresh cut fruit.
Easy on the sugar, high on the finer and blessed by black magic.
