A Healthy Breakfast

Something easy and healthy that mom used to make - Cream of Wheat "Pudding".

We used to call it Cream of Wheat Pudding, but it's really cream of wheat done in a slightly different way than what's called for on the box. These modifications make it MUCH more tasty than how you're 'supposed' to cook it. First, take a teaspoon of Smart Balance margarine and melt it in a small pan over medium heat. Add 3 tbsp of cream of wheat (the 2 1/2 minute cook time one in the red box) and saute for about 1-1 1/2 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups of 1% milk and quickly whisk around the mixture to prevent lumps and then add about 2 tbps of sugar (or Splenda, but we have held back on the splenda since mom3.0 got pregnant). After it comes to a very slow bowl, cook for about 30 more seconds and then add a cap of vanilla extract. Cool slightly and Enjoy!
