9 grains for breakfast or lunch

IMG_7584

I found this nine grain blend at our local health/bulk store and it consists of Hard Red Wheat, White Wheat, Barley, Rye, Oats, Corn, Millet, Buckwheat, Flax Seed. It is delicious and full of nutrients. What’s more, it takes very little time to prepare. Just put in a pot with a one to two ratio of water and it is done in less than 10 min. You can enjoy it as sweet or savory and for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
