If you are curious about "blueberry morning", it is a recipe that was originated by Yuri Elkaim, but I've tweaked it to be my own. It starts with blueberries in a bowl, pour some almond milk over it, and then I cover this with layers of ground flax seed, flaked coconut, hemp seed, pumpkin seed and sunflower seed. My husband says it looks like a bowl of bird seed. Well, it's good for my cholesterol and I find it satisfying. It's worth trying if you are trying to cut your cholesterol naturally.
