Hot - Steel-cut oats with blueberries, cinnamon, ground flax, and a mix of black and white sesame, chia, and hemp seeds.

Cold - Nature's Path Flax Plus, with added almonds, raisins, cinnamon, ground flax and the above seed mixture, topped by a cup of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries combined. The thing I like about Flax Plus cereal is that it has more plant based omega-3's than omega-6's in it. The vast majority of cereals out there have way too high an omega-6 content compared to omega-3's for my liking.

Use low fat, unsweetened soy drink on both above cereals.

Cocoa Pebbles (chocoholic)

But I have peanut butter toast far more often.

Usually by the time cereal sounds good I'll find the Cocoa Pebbles have been raided by person or persons unknown, so I'll get a box at the store and the cycle starts anew.

Kashi's Go Lean with blueberries and skim milk. I like Honey Nut Cheerios without milk for a dry snack. I have already had breakfast, but I am going to have oatmeal with raisins for lunch! Sounds yummy!

I was able to find Kashi Go Lean cereal at a Big Lots store for $1.99 a box. I bought either 12 or 15 boxes at that price. This was around 10/07 and the expiration date is in 05/08. I just checked and I have 6 boxes left. However, I am out of blueberries. I need to go to Sam's Club and buy the large bags of frozen Dole's blueberries.

I also eat the Kashi cereals and made a similar large quantity purchase when I saw them on sale at Big Y. However most of the time I pay the stupid price at the local rip off market since I just stop on the way home from w*rk.

However, I have skipped the St. Martin trip for three years in a row (joe - SXM = joe in St. Maarten) and that will buy a lot of kashi :-)

During weekdays, Nature's Path Flax Plus Multibran, or the occasional bowl of steel cut oats with brown sugar.

On weekends or on DW's off days, crepes or waffles with eggs and homemade smoothies.

DW loves the Joe's Os and Apple Granola cereal from Trader Joe's.

5 parts organic rolled oats, 3 parts oat bran, 3 parts wheat bran, dash of wheat germ, dash of cinnamon, water, nuke for 5 minutes, add self-picked frozen wild blueberries, top with skim milk, nuke 20 seconds more.
This is a healthy cheap breakfast, especially when I buy 25-lb bags of rolled oats.
I have ambitions to add freshly ground flax seed but don't want to put flax in my coffee bean grinder.
You can take the girl out of the 1970's but....

Grape Nuts Flakes, plus strawberries (in season), walnuts, a tablespoon of wheat germ, and skim milk.

I like to get my iron in first thing in the morning to make sure I get it.

Do you have low iron?

What do people with hemochromatosis or who otherwise have high iron do? A lot of breakfast cereals are high in iron.
