I haven’t even finished my breakfast yet because I wanted to share it with everyone. I realized that this seemingly “normal” breakfast for me might be something others would like to try. Most of the items are easy to find. If you can’t find the herbal ingredients or just don’t have the time to do so, find it on my product page.
Here’s the ingredients: oatmeal + honey + kefir + slippery elm gruel.
Oatmeal is a great source of fiber, slippery elm gruel soothes the digestive system, and kefir has probiotics that are good for the digestive system. Add slippery elm gruel powdered to oatmeal then add honey and kefir to taste.
This slippery elm gruel recipe is from Rosemary Gladstar’s book Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. “This gruel (thick tea) is wonderfully soothing and healing. It is also extremely nourishing. Since the herbs are powdered, there’s no need to strain this gruel, slippery elm and marshmallow root are booth extremely mucilaginous. This makes them very soothing and healing to the intestinal tract.”
great advice but without any info on how to actually make it, it is totally useless.
Hi Bonnie, I gave the source for the recipe out of respect for the author. This was one of my very first posts and I was still trying to figure out what recipes I could add to my posts and which would be a copyright issue. Feel free to check out Rosemary’s wonderful book.
