Missing oatmeal or cream of wheat for breakfast in your new low carb life?

Here is a nice edition to your breakfast ideas.  This porridge is easy to make, filled with fiber, and tastes AWESOME!  It honestly tastes much better than oatmeal and contains Omega 3's.  Add some unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk to add even more flavor.

I used to like hot cereal for an evening snack and now use this instead.  It is fun to eat breakfast foods for dinner!  Give it a try!
