Go Boxless! 31 days of Whole Food for Breakfast

It's already October!! This time last year Em and I had a plan to post 31 {unvarnished} days.  This time around I've chosen to go it solo - by helping you go Boxless for Breakfast!

For the next 31 days I'll post ideas - mostly quick and easy recipes - for you to see how simple real breakfasts can be.   Whole food breakfasts are within your reach - why not go boxless for October and follow along? 

This first recipe guarantees hitting the snooze at least one more time - knowing breakfast is {pretty much} made before your feet even hit the floor. 

Crockpot brown rice porridge
 serves (at least) 6

1 c Organic brown rice (did you know all non organic rice is GMO?!)
butter or coconut oil
4 c water
1 T cinnamon
1 or 2 fresh eggs
1 1/2 c raw milk 
1/2-3/4 c local honey to taste 
Raisins, optional

Before you go to bed:
Butter the inside of your crockpot.
Add rice and water plus 3T butter or coconut oil and optional raisins.
Cook on low 6-7 hours - til you get up.  I get up about an hour before my kids, so keep that in mind. 
Take top off crockpot and turn down to warm.  Mix eggs, cinnamon, milk and honey and stir into the hot rice.  Put top back on, and let it sit for about an hour.  

Serve with an extra drizzle of honey and plenty of conversation about the three little bears.  

Hope it's just right for you too!

Ooh, good luck with this month! I am also doing the 31 day challenge, so of course that is where I found you. :)

I've been terrible about skipping breakfast lately, both because I hate boxed food and because I have no idea what to make on my own. :p Dinners, I can do. Breakfast and lunch are a mystery to me.

I can't wait to read all your posts for ideas! This one sounds good, but I don't quite have enough time for it. :)

Your 31 day challenge was written for me! Since going back to work after my second son was born earlier this year, I've become a total slave to the breakfast drive-thru. This seriously could not have come at a better time. I can't wait to see what you've got coming :)

Sounds interesting, can you taste the eggs at all? I think I might prefer it without them.

ALL non-organic rice is GMO?? :O Yikes, I need to look this up.
Looking forward to your series this month.

I live on either soaked oatmeal or buttered sourdough bread in the mornings, so I'm interested to hear all of your suggestions!
