Breakfast: Millet Puffs


I love the stillness of weekend mornings, especially under winter’s calm grey skies when it’s so quiet and so peaceful, and the world is still for a moment.

I had quiet and tranquil mornings this weekend, a nice pace from the high of the holidays, and in keeping with the practice of daily breakfasts, I had puffed cereal both mornings.

I’ve accepted that breakfast doesn’t always have to be elaborate or made from scratch, and here’s where breakfast cereal comes in handy.

We do a lot of puffed grains, usually rice, millet, amaranth or quinoa, I like that it has one ingredient, wholesome and come with no added sugar or preservatives.

Of course, I liven up my puffed cereal with nuts, fruits, sometimes candy, giving it that special quirky touch.

My favourite are the millet puffs, we buy them by the bag full and go through them pretty quick too, it has a crunchy nutty sweetness that I can’t get enough of.

I love it with peanuts and warm almond milk lightly sweetened with maple syrup, and sometimes I even throw in some gummies for good measure!
