Most of us grew up eating cream of wheat, it usually tops most breakfast lists from healthy breakfast ideas to easy breakfast ideas. This recipe is quick and easy and require minimal ingredients. The recipe only calls for 3 when you add the toppings you choose you may be looking at three to ten, which is still minimal in this world or gourmet cooking. One thing our recipe lacks when compared to the instant is that it requires some prep work, but within thirty minutes you can prep a healthy breakfast for the whole week, making it a great addition to your meal planning.
Which leads us to the most commonly asked question about cream of wheat. Is cream of wheat healthy? Well that depends on your definition of healthy, but it is an amazing source of whole grain nutrition. Our recipe isn’t enriched like the boxed can so the cream of wheat nutrition varies from the label on the box. However you will still find that half cup of wheat berries contains 20% of your daily iron*. Also the wheat berries are sugar and sodium free.
But what is cream of wheat? If you make it your self it is wheat berries and milk, which differs greatly from the ingredient list you will see on an instant cream of wheat box. The the fact that we also use Non-GMO, grown in the USA wheat berries that you can trace to the very field they grew in, also help you know where your food is coming from. WIth most of us looking to decrease the amount of processed foods in our lives this breakfast recipe fits in perfectly with this line of thought.
