Coconut Whine

Good morning!  This’ll be a quickie because I want to finish my paper and go back to bed.

For breakfast I had a nice big bowl of Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Hot Cereal.  It’s a combination of “stone ground high protein hard red wheat, rye, triticale, oat bran, oats, corn, barley, soy beans, brown rice, millet, and flaxseed.”


I had this on Tuesday as well, but, alas, the missing camera cord prevented me from reporting my findings.

Today’s bowl was rich and decadent:


  • 1/4 cup 10 grain hot cereal (it triples in size, at least!)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk, mixed in 2/3 way through cooking
  • 1/2 banana
  • 2 strawberries, microwaved to a syrup
  • brown sugar
  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  • cinnamon


It was missing something, so I went back to the pantry for some walnuts and hazelnuts.


I really like this breakfast, mostly because it reminds me of Cream of Wheat, which my babysitter used to make for me when I was little. The texture is much, much finer than oatmeal, but it’s also what I imagine pooridge from Oliver Twist’s days to taste like.

Hopefully it’ll keep me full until lunch, but if not, I have a nice big grapefruit to satiate me.  Have a wonderful Friday!
