Faux Cereal

So getting my hubby Al to eat gluten-free is not an easy thing to do.

He feels better when he does it, but it is hard for him because he is very social creature and will eat pretty much whatever you put in front of him so he can continue talking, shooting, laughing or fishing.

And when he gets hungry, his go-to snack is several handfuls of cashews, so while this is gluten-free, I needed to find a more cost-effective and less caloric way to satisfy his craving for something healthy, gluten-free and yummy.

When I went to MovNat camp for a week in West Virginia (what seems like forever-ago) Clifton Harski prepared a cereal-free concoction with fruit and nuts that made you feel like you were eating cereal. I adopted it with my family.

So here it is!

  1. Chop up whatever fruit you have on hand or use generous amounts of berries. My favorite is mixing strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
  2. Pour your favorite milk on top: coconut, unsweetened almond or some pastured whole milk. No milk on hand? A dollop of Greek, full-fat yogurt (or whatever you enjoy) works too!
  3. Sprinkle generously with walnuts and/or pecans and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Enjoy! ~Lori
