Energizing Superfood Cereal

Often times on weekday mornings we find ourselves rushing to get out the door and find little time to eat a nourishing and satiating breakfast.  But as we’ve all heard many times skipping breakfast is terrible for our bodies.  Eating a balanced, nutrient rich meal early in the day properly fuels the body, prevents a midday energy crash, and diminishes the potential for cravings and overeating in the late afternoon and evening. Store bought breakfast cereals are a quick and convenient solution but are generally over processed, void of sufficient nutrients, contain unrecognizable ingredients, have added sugar, and aren’t filling.  Making your own natural and unprocessed breakfast cereal is easy and a super healthy alternative.  This recipe is packed with high quality digestible protein, antioxidants, fiber, healthy fats, and essential vitamins, minerals, and enzymes- including vitamin K, D, B, E, zinc, iron, magnesium, potassium, and calcium.  And if you have a gluten intolerance or sensitivity, this buckwheat cereal is completely gluten-free.  It’s truly an energy powerhouse that will leave you wanting to get out the door and run laps around the block.  And believe me when I say it’s so yummy my friends actually request it!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
