I found the most delicious hot cereal! And it's great for you too. Let me just say... I hate oatmeal. I know it's good for you. I wish I could eat it... but I can't. I've tried everything. It's not even healthy anymore by the time I've sweetened it to the point where I can stand a few bites, and even then I can't finish a full serving.
This hot cereal is different. It's not just a bowl of boring, tasteless mush. This cereal combines a variety of superfoods to give it a burst of flavorful nutrition. The brand is Earnest Eats, and the flavor I tried this morning is the Asian Blend w/ Mango & Green Tea. It has mango, matcha (green tea), cinnamon, oats, quinoa, amaranth, almonds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds and sesame seeds. The result is a very interesting flavor and texture.
I can't eat hot cereal without sweetening it, so I added about a tablespoon of raw, unfiltered honey. Honey is a superfood in and of itself. I probably killed off most of the healthy enzymes by pouring it into a steaming hot mug of cereal, but at least it's better than sugar.
If you don't like oatmeal or you're looking for something new to try for breakfast, check out Earnest Eats' website. I found all three flavors of their hot cereal at Publix, but you can probably get it at most chain grocery stores.
