Anatomy of Oatmeal, part I

The most important meal of the day is breakfast. We have all heard this, usually from our mothers, but I am sure it is somewhere in The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Medicine. Breakfast in our house has been carefully composed; each ingredient has a rationale and special properties. Mixed together they get us through the morning without an energy drop. Ingredients: fresh rolled oats, Gou Ji Zi, Gui Zhi, dried apricots, dried prunes, Coconut oil, butter, raw cows milk (goat in season), maple syrup and sea salt. Subsequent postings will address each of these ingredients from a variety of sources.
