Gluten-Free Seven Grain Breakfast Cereal

This gluten-free, refined sugar-free, vegan breakfast cereal takes less than 10 minutes to put together and makes enough to feed your family for several days.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I know, it’s cliché at best, but I’ve found it to be true.

So many women tell me they skip breakfast to stay lean and trim because if they don’t eat in the morning then they don’t get hungry until lunch. It’s never been true for me. I’m hungry in the morning and, honestly, I want to eat.

Eating a healthy, balanced meal in the morning does several things:

  • It ‘breaks the fast’ from the night before. You’ve already gone 8 hours or more without eating. Your brain and body need some fuel.
  • Breakfast jumpstarts your digestive system and gets everything moving again. 
  • Eating a healthy breakfast can actually help you maintain a healthy weight. 

Often those on a gluten-free diet don’t get enough fiber because once they cut out the wheat they’re not sure what to replace it with. I make an effort to get whole grains and fiber into my diet at every meal, but I always start with a solid breakfast. It sets the tone for the day and it helps balance out the days when my diet isn’t as clean as I’d like it to be.

That’s why this creamy, porridge-like, simple-to-make whole grain breakfast dish is at the top of  my list when it comes to healthy breakfast recipes. I’ve included a variety of gluten-free grains that are nutrition packed so you get important vitamins, minerals and fiber all in one.  If you’re not familiar with all of the ingredients or you can’t find them at your local health food store, don’t worry.  Swap out the items you can’t find and replace them with an equal amount of something else.

Never fear, Monica. In my introduction I promised that the blog would cover all kinds of celiacs and gluten-free folks. There are weekly themes lined up and next week we will do a post on grain-free breakfast options. One of the celiacs in our house is one of those who just can't tolerate grains, so I know what you mean when you ask for GRAIN-FREE, please!!! My daughter would be right there with you.
