October #Unprocessed: Steel-Cut Oats with Honey-Poached Quince

Here we are at Day One of my 2013 October #Unprocessed challenge. For the most part, my family doesn't eat processed foods. At least I don't think that we eat processed foods; I buy ingredients and make - from scratch - just about everything my family eats. And we get all of our fruits and veggies from our CSA or the farmers' market. But this month is a great eye-opener for me to think about how the ingredients I buy are processed.

To kick-off the month, I made steel-cut oats and topped it with honey-poached quince. Read, at Eating Rules, about the different kinds of oatmeal. The steel-cut variety are as close to intact oat groats as you can get. And I poached the quince in a water plus raw honey mixture to keep my sweetener as unprocessed as possible, too. I managed to track down raw milk as well. Feeling pretty good about our first #Unprocessed breakfast.

What did you have for breakfast? Comment below.
