How do you eat your Cream of Wheat?

I love the texture of cream of wheat.  I started eating a lot of cream of wheat ever since I wanted to increase my blood iron.  For 3 tbsp it is 30% of your daily iron intake.  It is a wonderful way to get iron.  The recipes that I am sharing are refined sugar free. Cream of wheat not only can be healthy for you, it is a very versatile ingredient.

How to make basic cream of wheat

Very simple.  Add all your ingredients to your bowl.  Follow the instructions on the box of cream of wheat. Pour in hot boiling water. I find that you will get super creamy cream of wheat with hot water. Stir and allow to sit for a minute.  Put in the microwave for 3 minutes.  Stir every minute. You can sweeten this with maple syrup or some honey or coconut sugar.  Substitute the water with milk, soya milk, almond milk or other liquid of your choice for a richer flavor.
