Teff Hot Cereal (gluten free)

Life continues to move along. We just got back from a trip to Florida. I have never been there before. We had a great time and enjoyed lots of water and sunshine. My favorite part was being with my husband. 

I continue to love having hot cereal for breakfast. It is fun to experiment and try new ones. This is a wonderful one loaded with nutrition. Look here to see some of the benefits to added Teff to your diet. This made a great breakfast. I get a wonderful satisfied feeling when I have a nice hot breakfast. It is a great way to start your day. I think I am going to make some for a snack. It is making me want some looking at the pictures. 

Here is something fun to watch to brighten up your weekend. Here cares about each one of us.

  1. I first came across teff because it is one of very few grains listed in Jonny Bowden’s “150 Healthiest Foods on Earth”. This was the first teff recipe I tried. I was sceptical because it seemed like a lot of spice but we were pleasantly surprised. The raisins nicely balance with enough sweetness that we didn’t need the honey. I made it again this morning and we are definitely keeping this yummy, healthy breakfast on our list! I’ve now become a teff evangelist! 😆 I couldn’t find teff at my local health food shops, but it was in the health section at Woolworths. Thanks for sharing the recipe, which I’ve passed on to other GF eaters.
