I had Quinoa Oatmeal for breakfast today.
What did you have?
We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet we often underestimate the importance of it. Many of us don’t have the time in the morning for a sit down breakfast. I totally understand. I lived on coffee alone for years. Now, that I am older, I look at things differently.
Quinoa Oatmeal is one of my morning favorites. I make it when I have leftover quinoa from dinner the night before.
Otherwise, I go for an old-fashioned oatmeal, made with milk (can’t stand oatmeal made with water!), canned pumpkin puree, coconut chips, agave and pumpkin seeds.
Sometimes, it’s Avocado Toast, Greek yogurt and fruit with Homemade Granola, or Caramelized Grapefruit, or GF Banana Peanut Butter Hot Cakes, or Creamy Scramble Eggs with Scallions, or some sort of omelette.
To make Quinoa Oatmeal you don’t need much!
Leftover cooked Quinoa, milk, some nuts, maybe some raisins… it will make wonders together!
I use almond milk, cashew milk or my favorite – Califia Almond Coconut milk.
I cook my Quinoa Oatmeal either on stovetop or microwave it for 2-3 minutes, whichever seems easier in that very moment.
Sometimes, I add a tablespoon of steel cut oats to give extra body to my oatmeal.
I top my Quinoa Oatmeal with whatever berries I have on hand.
Apples go with it nicely as well, especially if I use pecans.
It is so delicious and so satisfying! It keeps me full for hours.
You should try it!
Eat well, Spend Wisely! All day long!
