Spelt Berry Cereal with Berries

You can read about spelt here.. It has been a wonderful grain I have enjoyed very much. In lots of ways. It is a great alternative to wheat, it has a a lower gluten content too. A friend was recently telling me how much her family enjoyed it as a cereal. It would be similar to how people eat wheat berries. It was a fun breakfast. (The blueberries were frozen in this picture it was nice to mix them in and it cools down the cereal.
