This is my favorite paleo cereal recipe! It’s loaded in raw nutrition and fiber, which makes it great for the digestive system. You can be creative and add your own spin on this.
In the beginning I felt the need to add in maple syrup for a touch a sweetness, but now I don’t feel that need at all. I find that adding in fruit or raisins is all the sweetness I need. But if you feel that this recipe is tool bland for your taste, feel free to add in a touch of raw honey or maple syrup.
- 1/3 cup Amaranth Seed
- 1/3 cup Chia Seeds
- ¼ cup Sesame Seeds
- 3 cups filtered water
- 1 cup Almond Milk (or filtered water)
- Optional- ¼ cup Honey or maple syrup
- Optional- Berries, bananas or raisins
- Place the amaranth in a medium to large saucepan and add the 3 cups of filtered water. Simmer on low to medium heat for about 45-60 minutes.
- While that is simmering, mix the chia seeds with almond milk or water and set aside.
- Keep a close eye on your amaranth. If the water cooks out too quickly, add additional water.
- The amaranth is finished once it has thickened up and becomes more of a gooey consistency.
- If too much water is left over in the amaranth lightly strain it out.
- Add the chia seed mixture and sesame seeds to the pre-cooked amaranth.
- Stir until it’s all mixed together.
- If you need to sweeten this up, you can stir in honey or maple syrup.
- This will give you around 5-6 servings.
- You can store this in the fridge for about 6-7 days or in the freezer for about 3 months.
- You can eat this warm or cold.
- If you’re adding in raisins, allow them to soak in the cereal for about 10 minutes and then lightly heat it up on the stove-top. This will give the cereal a very satisfying sweet flavor and is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it!
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea,constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
