Banana-Ginger-Pear Cereal

If triathlete Brendan Brazier has a little more time than usual in the mornings, then he’ll prepare this Banana, Ginger, Pear Cereal, instead of his usual smoothie. This cereal can be prepared quickly and it provides a balanced meal. This recipe is much easier to digest compared to most commercially sold cereals, which contain refined grains and lots of sugar. If you want to up your nutrient intake even more, you can chop up an energy bar and sprinkle it over the raw cereal.
