Mudhugger - all your foods sounded super yummy. Do you think I could add some steel cut oats to the flax and chia seeds? If I am using cow milk, should I mix it with the spices and keep that part in the fridge? Do you keep the other stuff soaking on the counter? For spices I'm just thinking cinnamon and nutmeg...is there another one or two I should add?
Yeah, keep it in the fridge overnight like if you were doing baked oatmeal. I think you could add steel cut oats-- I'd try it-- might be a bit starchy. I have crazy aversion to grains and beans this pregnancy, so the primal diet is a life saver. This hot cereal recipe is from Mark's Daily Apple, a primal blog. (Awesome recipes, but probably not if you're vegetarian...) Honestly, it takes me so long to get organized in the morning that I can put stuff to soak when I get up and then after chasing DS around and trying to get the day going, it's ready. For spices I've added nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom.
