It has been eleven lonely days without a post. One of the occupational hazards involved with being a teacher is falling ill. Between teaching in room where 125 students pass through on a daily basis (half of which are bringing some sort of disease with them), and the trees which are perpetually producing pollen, it is extremely difficult to remain immune to some sort of sinus issue during a Florida spring season. While I have cooked (of course vegan!) the past two weeks, nothing has been blog worthy…that and I had very little energy to do much more than required for my job…jobs…there are three of them now!
The good news is…I am feeling much better! The past two mornings I have woken up feeling healthier, and hopefully by the end of the weekend I will be back to perfect!
One of the things that lets me know that I am healthy is an appetite for something new. I had wheat berries in my fridge from a stew I made a while ago, and they were calling out for a new purpose! After quickly searching the internet for ideas, I made the following dish:
Ingredients for Sweet Wheat Berries for Breakfast:
1 cup of wheat berries (warmed)
2 tbs honey
1 tbs maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
sliced strawberries (or any fruit)
handful of golden raisins (or any dried fruit)
Warm the already cooked wheat berries. If you have wheat berries that aren’t cooked, cook them! I used the information from this post Eating Well, Cooked Wheat Berries.
In a separate bowl, combine honey, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Taste and adjust. Add wheat berries and stir until evenly coated. Pour into serving dish, add fruit, and enjoy! I would put some joke in here about wheaties for breakfast, but alas, I cannot think of any! Comment below if you know one!
Simple, tasty, and vegan! A great way to start your breakfast!
