Breakfast Paste

I don’t know if this is good enough to patent, but I like it for breakfast a few days a week. I’ve been losing some weight lately as a result of our family’s attempt to change the way we eat long-term. Weight loss is not so much the goal as total paradigm shift.

Part of the paradigm shift is breakfast. Smaller portions, more protein, more fiber and whole grains. And below is the recipe that I use to help me actually enjoy the high-fiber cereals that are supposed to be good for me.

3 tbs peanut butter (preferrably natural)
1 tbs honey (prefer local)
1 tbs Grape Nuts
2 tsp All Bran (we call it “Fiber Worms”)
Optional: raisins, dried cranberries, dash of cinnamon

Mix peanut butter and honey together with a spoon in a small bowl. Helps to heat the peanut butter up for 15 seconds in the microwave first. Adjust peanut butter and honey mixture to desired viscosity. Mix in remaining ingredients.

Gotta have milk or coffee with this. Sticks to the roof of your mouth. Fills you up until lunch.
