Cereal from the Bible???

I tried a new cereal this morning and I must say, it's pretty good. By looking at the ingredients, I fully expected to be eating cardboard. But, it turned out to be really tasty. The interesting thing is that the recipe for this cereal is based on a verse from the Bible, Ezekiel 4:9. In fact, that's the name of the cereal. Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Cereal. I comes in 3 varieties: Original, Almond, and Golden Flax. Oh, the verse:

"Take also unto thee wheat and barley and beans and lentils and millet and spelt and put them in one vessel and make bread of it..."

So, if you read the ingredients on the box, it's exactly those things. Pretty cool, huh!

I definitely think it would be better with some type of berry, like strawberries or blueberries. I tried it with bananas and just didn't care form the combination. Some may like it though.

That's pretty good that you can get in a scripture reading while eating breakfast! My favorite is a serving Peanut Butter Captain Crunch mixed with a serving of Fiber One. Sounds weird, but it's pretty yummy!

Now I think you know how I feel about words in the Bible by now. But flax seed? Nope; won't do it. That is a good marketing tool though.

Personally, I put a tablespoon in my oatmeal this morning and called it breakfast. It wasn't too bad....(I normally just eat it plain).
