Easy to DigestOats are an ideal breakfast grain because it is easier to digest than wheat or corn. Milk is heavy for digestion. Two powerful herbs, cinnamon and cardamom, are combined with the milk to make it lighter and less mucus forming. We chose almonds to supply proteins because they are also sattvic, helping to create a spiritual state of mind.
Cereal & MilkMost Americans who eat their morning cereal with cold milk would be shocked to discover that milk with grains is generally a bad food combination. The milk curdles almost instantly in the stomach forming a greasy, indigestible coating over the cereal grains. When cooked together, however, the mixture becomes homogeneous and more digestible.
Robust & ReplenishedIn the winter, thin, deficient Vata people have trouble keeping warm. Their naturally high metabolism burns off any stored energy. To replenish, Vata people should select a digestible breakfast that 'sticks to the ribs.' In Ayurveda, recipes that stick to the ribs build ojas, which is well-formed, well-nourished tissue.

I have tried the recipe and it is really nice in the morning. I made it with honey instead of maple syrup. It is this ok? I have read that honey becames toxic if put it in hot food. Thanks in advance.
