This has been my mainstay breakfast for more than twenty years. I never get sick of it and no two bowls are ever quite the same, depending on which fruits are in season and the milk substitute I have on hand.
This was also a favorite recipe for most of the E2 Pilot Study participants. As a seven-year old daughter of one of the E2 participants said, “I look forward to waking up in the morning just so I can have my Rip’s Bowl.”
Let your appetite be your guide as to the size of your bowl.
1/4 cup raw old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup Grape Nuts or Ezekiel brand equivalent
1/4 cup bite-size shredded wheat
1/4 cup Uncle Sam cereal
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons walnuts
1 banana, sliced
1 kiwi, sliced
Segments of one grapefruit and juice
¾ cup milk substitute of choice
Toss all ingredients except the grapefruit and milk substitute into a bowl.
After cutting grapefruit in half, use a small, sharp knife to remove the segments. Add segments to the top of the bowl and squeeze in the juice.
Top the bowl with milk substitute.
In a pinch, simply add water (the fruits blend with the water and give it a sweet taste)
