One of my normal breakfast meals is based on one cup, cooked on the stovetop, of either steel-cut oats, 8-grain cereal, or 10-grain cereal; the last is my favorite.
Often when I've made it, my younger son comes along and eats 1/2 the pot and ...I'm still hungry---especially because I've often waited until 2-3pm to eat _breakfast_.
Today I ate 3/4 of the pot, adding:
~ 1 tsp cinnamon (it goes with cereal and it's a super-spice)
~ 1 tsp cocoa powder (unsweetened, for the hint of indulgence with the flavor of chocolate)
~ a dash of nutmeg
~ a dribble of maple syrup (seriously, just a drip)
~ 1 tsp nutritional yeast (vegan friends said to put it in "everything")
And then I put in 1 cup of frozen blueberries (who wants really hot cereal on hot days?), another superfruit, and cooled it further with hemp-milk (high protein, very healthy). With this as a start, and with just fruits and nuts as I go---and LOTS of water---I shouldn't crash and burn, get overhungry, or hit other trouble spots that come from not eating.
This is one of my 2 favorite breakfasts.
