amaranth for breakfast

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The approved grains on the elimination diet are brown rice, amaranth, quinoa, and wild rice, although it’s not a “grain” — it’s a grass seed.  But I digress.

Ingredients:

Cooked amaranth, quinoa, brown rice or wild rice — I like amaranth but it’s quite expensive

frozen blackberries (blueberries, any berry except strawberries)

coconut milk (I like the non-low-fat variety)

if you really want to be extravagant, you can add some coconut “butter” spread — yum!  Adds calories and yummy taste.

and instead of brown sugar, add coconut palm sugar for sweetening

If the amaranth is still warm from cooking, just stir it all together.  Awesome!  If the amaranth is cold and refrigerated as a leftover, warm things up a bit.  What a great way to start the morning.
