Rip Esselstyn's Big Breakfast Bowl
Recipe Courtesy Rip Esselstyn, Adapted From 'The Engine 2 Diet'
Toss all ingredients except the grapefruit and milk substitute into a bowl.
After cutting the grapefruit in half, use a small, sharp knife to remove the segments.
Add the segments to the top of the bowl and squeeze in the juice.
Top the bowl with milk substitute.
Variations: In a pinch, simply add water (the fruits blend with the water and give it a sweet taste).
Add any fresh or frozen fruit, such as peaches, cherries, mangoes, blueberries, or red grapes.
If you want to lower your cholesterol levels even more, use half a cup of oats and omit one of the quarter cups of the other cereals.
