Crock Pot Porridge

Crock Pot Porridge

Whole grains are essential for building strong, lean bodies. What better way to start your day than with a crock pot loaded with the best of the body-building whole grains? Set it up the night before, plug in and wake up to "instant" home-cooked goodness. Jazz up the porridge with fresh berries, flaxseed, wheat germ and bee pollen. Guess who's buff now?

1/2 cup cracked wheat
1-1/2 cups steel cut oats
1/2 cup rye flakes
1/2 cup brown rice
1/4 cup wheat germ
6-1/2 cups water or any combo of liquids including:
     water; rice, soy, almond, or goats milk and/or water to equal 6-1/2 cups
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 chopped dates
1 tbsp best-quality bourbon vanilla
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
Pinch nutmeg

Hint: add any dried fruit you may like to this dish, it is very forgiving.

Place all ingredients in a 3-quart-or-greater crock-pot. Stir well to combine all ingredients. Cover. Set on lowest cooking temperature and cook overnight. If your crock-pot cooking time is set by length of cooking time, set for the longest cooking time and lowest heat.

Spoon into cereal bowls in the morning and serve piping hot!
