Whether breakfast is your favorite meal of the day or you’re someone who’s kind of on the fence about consuming it, there’s no way around the fact that breakfast is good for you. From a health perspective, it can provide you with a boost of energy, it can give you more brainpower, and it can even reduce the chances of you gaining weight or becoming a type 2 diabetic.
But what if you’re pressed for time and you need to make something that’s quick and satisfying? If so, how about some strawberry cereal? Not the kind that’s full of sugar and preservatives.
Today, let’s discuss all of the good that can come from enjoying a bowl of hot germade strawberry cereal.
What Is Germade?
If you’ve never heard of germade before, basically it’s a type of wheat cereal grain that contains the wheat’s germ and endosperm. Another name for germade is farina which is the Latin word for “flour” or “meal” (in case you want to do more research on it)
Germade is high in protein, calcium, iron and Vitamin B. It should go on record that it also contains gluten (which you should keep in mind if your diet is gluten-free). As far as its taste, it's somewhat on the bland side of things. And as far as its texture, it’s very similar to Cream of Wheat.
One of the reasons why germade is a popular breakfast option is it’s easy to prepare. All you need is a pot, some water or milk (or milk alternative) and you can make it in a matter of minutes on your stove or even in the microwave. Then just add your favorite toppings (like honey, cinnamon or fresh fruit) and you’re all set.
Have You Ever Had Our Strawberries and Cream Cereal Before?
Remember how we mentioned that germade can be a bit on the bland side? Something that can instantly add more flavor to it is to try our Strawberries & Cream Germade. To this day, it’s one of our most popular selling products.
There are a few reasons why.
1. Everyone Needs Some Protein in Their Life
The three macronutrients that all of us need in order to keep our system healthy are fats, carbs and protein. Protein is good for you because it increases muscle mass, boosts metabolism and it can reduce cravings for junk food or eating late at night.
Germade is wonderful source of protein. And since it doesn’t contain any animal products, it’s a wise protein alternative if happen to be vegetarian or vegan.
2. Consuming Vitamin B Is a Great Way to Begin Your Day
Did you know that close to 40 percent of people in the United States alone are deficient in Vitamin B? Your body needs this nutrient in order to increase brain power, strengthen immunity, balance hormones and reduce stress levels.
So, what if you know that you’ve got a long workday ahead of you and you need as much strength as possible to get through it? If that’s the case, eating some germade could benefit you on a myriad of levels. Especially if you know that you need some extra Vitamin B in your system.
3. Germade Is a Low-Calorie Option
Something else that’s pretty awesome about germade is, although it’s quite filling, it’s low in calories at the same time. For instance, you might be surprised to know that our Strawberries & Cream Germade is only 110 calories per serving. This means that you can enjoy a hearty breakfast without feeling heavy or worrying about adding on any unnecessary pounds.
4. Strawberry Cereal Is Delicious
If you’ve never had the pleasure of enjoying a piping hot bowl of hot strawberry cereal before, what are you waiting for? The only thing better than eating our strawberry cereal as-is is adding some fresh slices of strawberries on top of it!
Strawberries are also a low-calorie fruit. Plus, they contain protein, fiber, Vitamin C, potassium and folate.
5. There Are So Many Things That You Can Make with Germade
Even though we’ve spent a lot of time discussing how germade is a wonderful breakfast cereal option, it can be used for more than just that. Because it is a dry cereal grain, it can also be an added ingredient for pancakes or muffin mix waffles. Germade is also awesome in custard, cookies and cakes.
Another thing to keep in mind is some people like to use germade as a flour alternative. The reason why is, unlike germade, white flour is stripped of its bran and germ; this gives it very little nutritional value. As a direct result, white flour is full of carbs and calories but not much else.
Although germade does have a coarser texture than white flour does, you can still bake with it just as easily. And when you do, you can feel confident that you are consuming a healthier option than white flour, whenever you use it.
