Breakthrough Buckwheat Breakfast!!

23Feb11

Ok, maybe breakthrough is a bit of an exaggeration, but I have discovered a new breakfast option I’m excited to share.  I found this Creamy Buckwheat Cereal at Whole Foods and thought it would be a great alternative to oatmeal.

 I fixed it with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, Stevia and coconut milk.  Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Well, it really wasn’t and I was disappointed.  I let the cereal sit in the cupboard for a week and thought about what else I could do with it.  I had my breakthrough this afternoon as I was making Bri’s peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  The peanut butter smelled sooo good and I did a bad thing…I cheated on my diet.  I ate a whole, heaping spoonful of peanut butter (peanuts are not allowed because they usually have mold on them.  Not helpful when on an antifungal diet).  So then I did another bad thing…I fixed a bowl of creamy buckwheat cereal and mixed in another heaping spoonful of peanut butter and some Stevia. WOW and YUM!!! It tasted like I was eating a peanut butter cookie. So, I figure if I use cashew or almond butter instead of peanut butter, it will still be super yummy and kosher for the diet. Here’s what you need:

  • ¼ cup of Creamy Buckwheat Cereal
  • ¾ cup of coconut milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 large spoonful of cashew/almond butter
  • Sprinkle of Stevia

Mix well and enjoy!

    I am so excited to find your recipes. I have been on this diet for two weeks and I am getting sick of it…no idea what to cook to make eating fun again!

    • Nikki, I know it’s hard starting out but you’ll get there. The diet seems more worthwhile once your symptoms start to lessen or disappear. I’ve started a separate blog for all of my anti-Candida recipes that you may find helpful. The link is below. Thanks so much for your kind comment!! Good luck with your diet 🙂
