Hot Wheat Cereal with Milk

homemade hot wheat cereal with milk cinnamon vanilla extract and raw honey

Eating breakfast is one of the important things to do every morning to get your metabolism started for the day. If you are woman between the age of 18-50 and tried to consume the recommended daily iron, you already know how hard it is to do without overeating (i.e. consuming more and more calories to get the needed nutrient). Even when eating iron-rich foods, sometimes you still do not meet the daily recommendations. The easiest way is to pop a supplement, but we encourage to try and get the needed iron from food the natural way. For that reason, we are publishing this very simple and fast recipe of hot wheat cereal which is a great source of folic acid, calcium, and iron. You get about 60% of your iron needs with just 130 calories. That is a great deal right there!!

My family loves oatmeal which is another great alternative (recipe here) to get needed iron for the day. However, at some point eating oatmeal, every day gets old. Hence, we are including some other iron-rich alternatives for variety should you need it. The below recipe is just a basic recipe with toppings we use all the time: cinnamon, vanilla extract and honey. You can, of course, put more toppings of your choice such as fruit – banana, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, etc. You can also substitute the honey with another sweetener of your choice, eliminate it altogether. The sky is the limit of how much different varieties of hot wheat cereal you can do. You can also choose to use another milk – coconut, almond, etc. My kids love regular dairy milk so most of the time I just use regular full-fat milk. Here is a link to a post where we talk a little bit about difference of full fat milk and fat free one.
