A Delicious, Healthy Breakfast

I’ll be honest, I’m not big on hot cereal “mushes” for breakfast like oatmeal, cream of wheat, or cornmeal. Oh, I’ll eat them and enjoy them, but they’re not my favorite. I highly prefer to eat something with substance, like toast, pancakes, waffles, etc.

However, when I saw that Mom had cornmeal on the menu for breakfast a couple mornings ago, I decided to look online for a recipe to adapt that might suit my picky palate. I found this recipe on Taste of Home, and “healthinized” it. It turned out delicious!

Blueberry Cornmeal Pudding

Ingredients: Water, Cornmeal, Honey, Lemon juice or peel (optional), Vanilla, Salt, Blueberries, & Soymilk.

Bring to boil: 2 cups Water in a saucepan.

Add: 1/4 cup Honey (or to taste), 1/4 teaspoon Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla, and 1 teaspoon Lemon/Lime juice or a dash of grated peel (optional or to taste–personally, I think it would have been better without the lemon).

Mix in a separate bowl: 2 cups COLD Water with 1 cup Cornmeal. Whisk together until no lumps of cornmeal remain.

Stir: The cold water/cornmeal mixture into the hot mixture in the saucepan. Keep stirring until your pudding has thickened.

Serve: Hot, with Soymilk and fresh/frozen Blueberries folded in.

Easy to make, absolutely delicious, and also quite healthy! Try it out, and let me know what you think!
