Flax Seed Cereal

Leave a comment

I love cereal. LOVE it. But I don’t eat it. When I do splurge on a box of LIFE, it’s gone is 36 hours. I heard a health professional speak a few weeks ago and she suggested an alternative—a “cereal” made with flax seed. I was not so sure, because I do love cereal. But I made it, and it hit the spot! Aside from avoiding the wheat, gluten, sugar, processed stuff, etc, I got all the great benefits of ground flax seed. Here’s what I did: Take ½ cup of flax seeds (I purchase whole and grind myself because ground goes bad much more quickly) and grind in a coffee grinder.

Surprisingly delicious cereal!
