Serves 6 / Buckwheat, oats, and apples contain loads of soluble fiber, which increases anti-inflammatory-protein production; and Brazil nuts provide selenium, a mineral that increases natural killer cells. Soaking grains overnight allows them to cook faster and imparts a creamier texture, but you can eliminate this step if necessary; just allow for increased cooking time. This makes a big pot, so gently reheat leftovers with milk for a quick and easy breakfast.
