Porridge or hot cereal or cream of wheat or Malt-O-Meal, it really doesn’t matter what you call this hot breakfast cereal that is great on a low-carb, keto eating plan. It’s just plain GOOD!
Seriously, the two things I miss about not eating many carbs is my cereal in the morning and the toast I would have with it. Carb on Carbs on Carbs. No wonder I ended up not being able to sleep on my tummy!
SO….I went to work, did my research and made my own hot cereal (I’m still working on the toast).
It reminds me of good, old fashioned Malt-O-Meal I used to eat when I was a kid. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
