Well, guys, the holidays are over so that means no more left over pie for breakfast. Now I’m only eating pie for dessert like a normal person. Bummer city! It’s cool though. I’m pretty excited for my pants to fit again.
One of my favorite healthier breakfast options is quinoa. Breakfast quinoa is almost like porridge or oatmeal and can be made in advance so it’s ready when you are. That helps when I wake up ravenous and want something fast. It’s good warm or hot and tastes great with fruit and nuts.
1 cup quinoa (rinsed)
2 cups almond milk
2-3 tablespoons agave
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a small pot, bring almond milk to a boil. Add quinoa and bring back to a boil. Lower heat, cover pot, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Mix in the chia seeds, agave, and cinnamon. Cover and simmer for about 5 more minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
If you want, you can add fruit or berries at the same time as the agave, chia, and cinnamon.
Enjoy hot or cold. Mix in fresh fruit or berries. Drizzle with agave or honey. Top it with more almond milk. So many options!
