Missing Oatmeal?

I am SO excited. It is amazing how difficult things can lead to a new idea.  Being grain-free has been surprisingly easy for me, with one exception.  Breakfast.  I like eggs – just not in the morning.  I have been making do by eating dinner leftovers or yogurt with honey and chopped nuts.  I really miss oatmeal.  Yes – it is gluten free, but it is a grain, so I need to stay away from it.

Well – I just had dental surgery and am on a soft-food diet.  While grocery shopping for something – ANYTHING – to vary my diet I found this.  Hodgson Mill  Gluten Free BUCKWHEAT Creamy Hot Cereal.  Yay!!  In spite of its name, buckwheat is NOT a grain.  The only other ingredient is ground flax seeds.

I made it this morning following the directions for the microwave.  It can also be cooked on the stove.  It was delicious.  I added a little honey.  I also used a mix of heavy cream and water to add richness.  Yum!! Next time I plan to use some maple syrup and see how that tastes.

So there is a bright side to dental surgery after all.  Hopefully I will make more discoveries.  I probably will be able to go on a more varied diet in a week or so.  The whole process will take a minimum of 4 months – so hopefully there will be some more good finds on this long road!
