Except there’s no peas in it.
I’ve been asked what a good pre-run meal is (OK 1 person asked me) and I have mostly been a toast and peanut butter type of gal BUT! I have discovered a Hot Cereal that is homemade and yummy- it is from The Eat-Clean Diet for Family and Kids by Tosca Reno.
http://www.toscareno.com I should be able to link her page non? but I don’t know how.
I don’t know a lot about her and her Eat Clean Diet apart from flipping through some of her books but I gather it is about eating food that is well… clean, natural, devoid of crap… sounds good to me- but then there are the other 7 people in the house that I have to convince.
I found all these things at my local grocery and even though it’s pretty much summer here I don’t mind eating hot cereal any time of the year;
1/2 C Oatmeal
1/2 C Cream of Wheat Cereal
1/2 C Red River (or other multigrain hot cereal)
1/2 C Wheat Germ
1/2 C Oat Bran
1/2 C Mixed dried Fruit, blueberries, cherries, cranberries
1/2 C Slivered Almonds
1.Mix all ingredients together in a large airtight container to keep for weeks.
2. To make breakfast use 1/2 C dried mixture and 1 cup water
3. Mix and heat on medium high until mixture thickens to a porridge-like consistency.
4. Serve in a bowl topped with skim milk.

Mm. Sounds good. I always bring cereal to work (it lapses on the weekend when more interesting items like fried eggs are consumed). For the past gazillion years it was always oatmeal but lately I switched to cream of wheat because it has all that Iron in it. I forgot how much I like cream of wheat.
You should try it… I get all excited just thinking about all that goodness in it!
