Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Standard

I hate to admit it, but we haven’t been eating as well as we did over the summer.  It’s alot easier to make fresher and lighter meals when lots of vegetables are in season and now that winter is here, we’re all about warming up with heartier and heavier meals.  While most are delicious and easy to make (not to mention, cheaper) they leave us depleted of energy and not feeling great about how we look and feel.  One way we’re trying to tweak our eating habits for the season is throgh breakfast.  We LOVE our french toast and pancakes, but that is for sure, not the best way to start your day.  This quinoa bowl is just what we need, although it is hard to get used to quinoa as a sweet meal rather than a savory one.

And frozen blueberries are not nearly as good as the real deal, but finding them fresh and organic is almost impossible! 😦

2 cups cooked quinoa

1 cup frozen blueberries, thawed

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup chopped raw almond

1/4 cup wheat germ

2 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp cinnamon

*Also optional, raisins or eating with coconut milk

  • Mix all ingredients together except honey
  • Once well mixed, drizzle with honey and stir again
  • Serve warm or cold
