A few weeks ago, I recognized an all too familiar feeling of tiredness and weakness that’d been hanging over me like a heavy cloud. I’ve been dealing with iron deficiency issues my whole life, off and on, and I could tell that I was yet-again running too low on the mineral. Times like this one, when the deficiency isn’t too extreme, I just start taking some iron supplements and up my intake of iron-laden proteins that I’m not always the biggest fan of. So this time around, instead of ordering a big hunk of meat every night for the next few weeks, I decided to look to one of my favorite but easily forgotten sources of iron: cream of wheat!

Cream of wheat always brings me back to my childhood, when my parents would heat me up a bowl in the mornings, with a touch of sugar and milk swirled in. My sister and I loved having cream of wheat for breakfast, with its savory-sweet smell and comforting warmth filling our bellies. Not only is it a yummy and filling breakfast, but it’s also very nutritious. Chock full of vitamins and minerals, with iron being its top bragging right, this classic breakfast is anything but simple. While I enjoy eating it plain, the same way that I did as a kid, ever since I decided to add it back into my eating regimen, I’ve been playing around with some fun toppings to give my breakfast an extra kick. I usually resort to adding a sliced banana, slivered almonds, and a bit of honey to my cream of wheat, but after browsing through these recipes that I randomly found, I can’t wait to mix up my routine a little more!
What do y’all think about cream of wheat? Have you tried it before?

Last night, I watched the documentary Fed Up, and I cannot express how eye opening, scary, and important this film is. It investigates America’s obesity epidemic and why our society is only getting bigger and bigger, despite increases in research and “education.” Even though I’m a very health-conscious person and always reading into the latest health news, I still learned quite a bit about how our minds have been brainwashed about nutrition and health over the years. Everyone being affected by this problem, a.k.a. ALL OF US, should watch this documentary and educate themselves about the foods we’re putting in our bodies. So, put down the Doritos, grab some water, and start watching this on Netflix ASAP!
Here are some disturbing images from the documentary:
