Fruit and Almond ‘Cereal’

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck, copyright February 2017.

Winter food is usually heartier food, at least for me, but I’m trying to eat lighter right now. After being sick so much in December and January, I just want to pack in all the nutrients I can. Holiday eating has a way of getting out of control, and my body pays for it in sickness and added weight. Ugh.

I’m eating more salads, drinking more smoothies, and enjoying simple ‘cereals’ and smoothie bowls. And I’m feeling a whole lot better.

The ‘cereals’ I eat are simple, and pack a good nutritional punch in the morning. I don’t, however, eat them every morning, preferring heartier breakfasts with eggs or meat and plenty of vegetables a few times a week. Too much fruit isn’t what I’m going for, preferring more vegetables instead.


1 small banana, peeled and sliced

4 large strawberries, green tops taken off, chopped

1 tbsp almond slices/slivers

1/2 cup almond, milk

  1. Place the fruit in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the almonds over the fruit.
  3. Pour milk over the fruit and almonds.


  • Use different types of fruit, such as apples and pears with a few blueberries.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with homemade vegetable juice.
