Hot cereal is a great way to eat whole grains. But hot cereal day after day can get a little boring.

Why not spruce things up by adding some crunch, extra taste and 8 more grams of fiber?  Read on to learn how to make my Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster. AND as a bonus I'll share some of my favorite totally great tasting hot cereal options.

Don’t miss this Prediabetes Breakfast Hot Cereal blog post...unless you want to continue eating boring oatmeal.

If you've hung around my website, you already know that if you want to reverse your Prediabetes one of the best things to eat is whole grains.

Whole grain oats, barley, wheat, quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat, sorghum and all whole grains are totally safe to eat.

And there's TONS of research to prove it!

The study mentioned in the box below looked at over 180,000 women. Those who ate more whole grains had a MUCH lower chance of getting Type 2 Diabetes....so bring on the whole grains!

"Women who averaged two to three servings of whole grains a day were 30 percent less likely to have developed Type 2 Diabetes than those who rarely ate whole grains."

Whole Grain, Bran, And Germ Intake And Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes: A Prospective Cohort Study And Systematic Review. PLoS Med. 2007 

But oatmeal day after day can be a bit much.

Oatmeal is Boring

Ladies often tell me that if they eat another bowl of oatmeal in the next century it'll be too soon! They are totally tired of the same old boring oatmeal everyday!

I totally understand.

That's why I make my Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster and add it to my oatmeal AND other whole grain hot cereals (you can see my favorite hot cereals below).  

So let's start sprucing up your hot cereal!

First I'll tell you:

  • How to make my Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster (it's so easy and only takes about 5 minutes)
  • Then I'll tell you what you can do with it my Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster (a hot and cold option)
  • And as a bonus I'll tell you some really yummy hot cereals that DON'T include oats (you might be shocked to know there are other whole grain hot cereals too...oatmeal is not your only option!) 

Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster

My Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster is VERY simple to make and you can easily make a batch in about 5 minutes!

Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster Recipe:

Servings: 14 (1/4 cup each)

  • 1.5 cups chia seeds
  • 1 cup chopped sunflower seeds/nuts (chop these in a blender or a food processor)
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds, hulled

Mix the three ingredients in a bowl. You'll need to chop your nuts or seeds in a blender or a food processor. Don’t worry if you chop them too much and you get seed/nut flour, it still tastes great.

Directions:

So what do you do with my Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster?

Well...you can actually do 2 things with it!

OPTION #1. Add 1/4 cup Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster, 1/4 cup dry whole grain cereal, double the water (so 1.5 cups water) and cook as you normally would.

OPTION #2. Add 1/4 cup Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster to your hot cereal when you're ready to eat it (this means the Yummy Hot Cereal Fiber Booster is cold and NOT cooked). This option is more crunchy.

Either way, you're in for a blast of extra taste AND blood-sugar-busting fiber!
