I may eat this everyday…

for breakfast! so today I tried something new for breakfast so I figured I would share while these kids are happy, quiet and occupied. They were pretty wound up for the funeral showing and dinner after this afternoon and evening. Boredom affects a 5 and 6 year old like 20 Redbulls would a full grown adult. So I brought mine plus one other back to my house for part of the late showing for board games to wind them down before we head back.

So for breakfast I made Quinoa with berries and pecans. It was amazing and I think I may eat it daily.

Here is the recipe:

  • 1/4 cup FF milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup mixed berries I used a mix of blackberries, raspberries and blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 2 tbs FF Greek yogurt
In a saucepan combine quinoa, milk and water, bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. While quinoa is cooking toast pecans in a dry skillet for 2 to 5 minutes, set aside. Put berries in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes until the berries start to soften and break down a little, set aside. When quinoa is done fluff and put in bowl, top with cinnamon, then fruit, then yogurt then pecans and last drizzle the agave on top and enjoy.
I found a similar recipe here and adapted it to my own tastes and needs as I listed above.
Bon Appetit!
