Eating like a bird

with 5 comments

My breakfast now comprises only seed:

  1. Oat groats
  2. Flaxseed
  3. Chia seed
  4. English walnuts
  5. Pumpkin seed
  6. Coffee seed

The first two are cooked together, then nos. 3-5 mixed in, along with blackstrap molasses, cinnamon, and pepper sauce. No. 6 is ground and then steeped to prepare a broth, served separately.

  1. The famous Canadian author Mordecai Richler (The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, etc.) was once asked by a journalist about his particular diet and how he managed to stay slim and fit. Richler responded that, yes, he did follow a special diet, “I eat what I like and I don’t eat what I don’t like”. I’m not sure if all those seeds will make you live longer….but it will sure feel longer! 🙂

  2. Actually, the mix is very tasty (to me), and pleasantly chewy. If you’re going to eat breakfast cereal, this is the best IMHO.

  3. It does sound good….I love cereals, and they are especially good for controlling blood sugar if you are diabetic or peridiabetic. Seeds, because of their monosaturated fats also seem to have additional circulatory system benefits. Living in Montreal though, I must confess a certain penchant for a good, chewy French baguette and a fine hand-cut marmalade with my Greek coffee in the morning. I prefer my cereal at night, to quench the pre-bedtime feeding frenzy!
