You can purchase this book from the Mother Earth Living store: At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen.

Creamy, light, and satisfying, this has been my staple warm-weather breakfast for many years. Like my Superfood Oatmeal for fall and winter, this is my go-to breakfast once the weather heats up. It’s just right for busy mornings, as it is best made ahead of time and travels well in a small jar. You can double or triple this recipe to have breakfast ready to go all week long. I recommend eating it at room temperature, so if you remove a portion from the fridge as soon as you get up, it’ll be ready by the time your breakfast hour rolls around. If you have a gluten sensitivity, make sure to use gluten-free oats and replace the wheat germ with extra-ground flax or leave it out.
