Wholy Wheat & Nuts

Whole Wheat & Nuts

Great as a snack or a breakfast. This dish is filled with nutrients, vitamins and dietary fibres. It consists of boiled whole wheat (which unlike porridge - keeps it's shape due to the outer layer of the 'whole' wheat)  it's this skin in whole wheat that provides us with the whole wheat health benefits. As for the nuts, a mix of natural raw almonds, raw pistachios, and raw walnuts are added. Take note that they are raw, this is the best way to get all the benefits and nutrients from nuts. 

This dish is beneficial for Digestive Health, Heart health & Mental Health.

This recipe is trés simple.
Portion size: 2

½ cup Whole Wheat
2 ½ cup Boiled Water

¼ cup Mixed Raw Nuts (Walnuts, Whole Almonds, Green Pistachios)
½ tsp Honey

You could also add:
2 tbsps of Shredded Coconut (powder)
2 tbsps Dried fruits (Raisins, prunes, apricots, figs, dates)
2 tbsps Pomegranate Arils


  • It's best if the nuts are soaked in water over night, or less - but if you are making it on the spot you can use non-soaked nuts.
  • In a pot boil the whole wheat for about 30 minutes.
  • Drain whole wheat of water, and let cool slightly
  • Mix in nuts (coconut) & Honey
  • Enjoy
I have to admit, I sometimes cheat with this recipe, and add sugar instead of honey - Against what I preach since I think sugar is one of the "deadly whites", but I sometimes prefer the taste that sugar adds to this recipe. So since your tastes buds may not be familiar to this recipe, I suggest you train them with a healthier option for sweetening.

Note: With the addition of dried fruits, you could avoid addition of sugar or sweetening agents since they'd provide with the 'sugars'

  3. Hi Malana, Glad you like it. Curious as to how you made it. Was it just the basic version, or did you decorate it and enjoy it with the fruits?
