Buckwheats Cereal and Almond Milk
Buckwheats cereal is incredibly versatile, as it can be served hot or cold and with or without any other ingredients. Making your own cereal at home is a great way to have it exactly the way you like it, but it’s also economical to buy buckwheats cereal premade, especially if you buy raw buckwheat grains, which are much cheaper than pre-made cereals or flours made from buckwheat groats.
This one is simple. Start your day with a high-protein, high-fiber meal that includes healthy fats. Research suggests that eating these foods can increase satiety (the feeling of fullness) after breakfast and help you eat fewer calories during lunch. Some great examples include Greek yogurt with berries, an omelet with veggies, or whole grain cereal topped with nuts. A delicious smoothie could also be a great way to start your day if you enjoy them — but be sure to keep it light in protein; if you add too much there’s a chance it will negatively affect your diet!
Buckwheats cereal, 1 cup water, 1⁄4 cup almond milk (or favorite type of non-dairy milk) – Cook buckwheat on stove top as usual. Make sure to use enough water to fully cover grains. If you prefer softer cereal add more liquid. – While buckwheat is cooking, soak in two cups of hot water for 15 minutes one half teaspoon each: curcumin, cinnamon (optional), ginger root powder, psyllium husk powder or flax seeds or chia seeds or hemp hearts. – Once soaked and buckwheat is done cooking stir in your soaked ingredients from step 2 into your cooked cereal.- Then add in a few dates for sweetness if desired; start with just one date so you can adjust to taste.
Wash 2 oz. of buckwheats cereal with a fine strainer, then add one gallon of almond milk to it and let it sit overnight (about 8 hours). In a large pan, bring about 4 cups of water to a boil. Add two tablespoons of olive oil, then add in one cup of buckwheat (including its milk). Cook until tender, then pour into separate serving bowls. Enjoy warm! Serves 3 people.
Buckwheat cereal is a healthy whole grain cereal that works well with most diets. Unlike other grains, buckwheat is not actually a grass; it’s part of a family of flowering plants called Polygonaceae. It has an earthy, mildly sweet flavor that goes well with fresh or dried fruit, nuts and seeds such as almonds, cashews, peanuts or sunflower seeds. Buckwheat can be purchased either raw or toasted; both versions work equally well in cereals. The flake-like seeds are also ground into flour for use in pancakes, muffins or cakes.

Buckwheat (or more specifically, buckwheat groats) is an ingredient that’s getting a lot of attention lately. It’s gluten-free, full of fiber, and since it has a nutty flavor profile, lends itself to a lot of different dishes. Another trend bucking its way into breakfast: almond milk. Packed with vitamins and minerals, almond milk is low in calories but high in nutrients — an important factor if you’re watching your weight or simply looking for ways to stay healthy. Put ’em together? Well…not so fast. Put one too many things on your plate (it happens to all of us), and you’ve got yourself one very full stomach without much else happening in there besides holding onto what you just ate.
