Great grains

Lately, we've been eating lots of low-alkaline grains with a bit of sweetener and fruit for breakfast. Although we love the oatmeal and the Peanut Butter Panda Puffs, we also realize every morning with acidic oats and processed cereal is a bit much.

Luckily, AC's been studying/becoming obsessed with Buddhism and has just learned about Siddhartha's discovery and teachings of the middle path.

AC: "Why can't we have Paaanda Puuufs, mooom?"

MD: "Dude, that's so unBuddha-like. "

AC: " ... "

MD: "Remeber? Moderation?"

AC: sigh

Don't you love real-life manipulation - er, application? ;)

Quinoa with pears, nutmeg, agave, soy milk (I also added some peanut butter to mine):

Peanut Butter Panda Puffs is Rob's favorite cereal. That's really cool about AC studying up on Buddhism. Your breakfasts look super tasty :)

I love the idea of eating more alkaline. I was thinking that tonight as I was shoveling pizza into my mouth... without a salad...

I love your Buddha-application. Ahh, the middle path. It's such a good reminder.

I love your breakfast ideas. I am sorry to say that I have never even tried amaranth. It looks like I should though! Your brekkies all look so good!!
