I have always loved cereal. I grew up eating a bowl of cereal every morning and sometimes one at night too. When I started eating naturally I switched to only organic cereals and was very picky about choosing ones that were not filled with sugar, although they all are. When we made the jump to being a cereal free household, I had to come up with a lot of new breakfast ideas, at the time we were eating whole foods, soaked grains, and vegetarian. When we started the GAPS diet our breakfasts had to change again. I like to have a plan and a system for everything that is just the way I am. So when we left cereal behind I tried a few recipes and came up with a new system that is working wonderfully for us. For all our breakfast recipes click here.
