Unholy sprouted quinoa

The cult of sprouts has sucked me back in. Multigrain hot cereal with sprouted quinoa, raw ("raw"?) almonds, and raisins. Cinnamon and brown sugar helped to make it palatable but digestion is going to be... brutal.

A lone organic raisin floats in a sea of grain mush and cinnamon. Some slimy almonds look on in silance.
Today's mush.

Last night I soaked almonds and raisins to soften them for the morning. About five years ago, I soaked almonds for the first time. I left them outside my dorm window to dry. I woke to a garrulous murder of crows crowding the roof of the loggia. They returned every day for a long time, but were infinitely better than the rodent they preceded.
