I am not a real fancy eater by any means and so I stick with easy foods. I cook in bulk and am fine with eating the same thing a few days in a row. This might not work for everyone.

Spiced Apple and Rice CerealFrom: The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook
1 cup brown basmatic rice, ground1 cup milk
2 to 3 cups water
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
pinch of sea salt
Apple Topping:2 teaspoons coconut oil
2-3 tart apples, cored and thinly sliced
¼ cup currants or raisins
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup or whole cane sugar
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ cup water
- Grind rice in a coffee grinder (I used my food processor and it works fine) Place into a 2 quart pot with the milk, water, cinnamon, cardamom, and sea salt.
- Bring to a boil, then turn heat to a low simmer and stir frequently until cooked, about 15 minutes. Add more water as needed for a thinner consistency. Remove from heat when cooked.
- In a medium skillet, heat coconut oil; add the apples, currants or raisins, maple syrup or sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sauté for about 2 minutes then add the water and simmer for about 5 minutes, uncovered, stirring frequently.
- Place rice cereal into individual serving bowls and spoon apple mixture over each.
