This breakfast is very high in fiber and low in sodium and fat. It's a very healthy way to start your morning.

1. Put flax seed in a spice or coffee grinder and process until coarsely ground. Combine all ingredients except water in a large bowl, mixing well.

2. Divide into 8 equal parts. Each part is one serving. You can place individual servings in plastic freezer bags to make later.

3. Decide how many servings you want to make, and bring to boil 1 3/4 cup water per serving in saucepan. Add cereal mixture, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook 2 more minutes or until thick, stirring constantly.
