The servants of grand houses needed a hearty breakfast for the long hours ahead of them. Many of us enjoy hot cereals for breakfast and many more should, particularly in the cold winter months. Our busy schedules has resulted in our reliance in fast and convenient foods. Food producers are more than willing to give us what we want, but is that what we need? Whole grains are far more healthier for you than instant varieties, and cheaper.
