I woke up wanting to try a new and fun breakfast…and succeeded! Got this link from Matt last night when I asked for breakfast inspiration: Quinoa Nutty Breakfast Bowl. The recipe served four, so I quartered it since it was just moi for breakfast.
Started out with one pitifully empty tub of Oikos, and an even more pitiful looking pup. 😉 Thought this was a perfect excuse to use the last of the yogurt, so it became my bowl!
Here was my version of the recipe:
- 1/4 cup Red Quinoa
- 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
- 1/4 Cup Water
Bring those to a boil, turn to medium…cover for 15 minutes. Once that time has elapsed, let stand on stove off the heat for 5 minutes. All of the liquid should be absorbed.
Here was the beginning phase:
Let that bad boy cook, and you are left with this:
Then it was time to add the delicious mix-in’s! Placed it in it’s yogurt home, and added half a sliced nana, a spoonfull of PB, and a sprinkling of brown sugar:
The yogurt made a perfect container AND added an amazing creaminess:
YUM. Definitely going to be adding this to the breakfast repitoire.
Found this surprise waiting for me:
Deans List!!! Holla. Nice way to end my college career! 😉
Did some dreaded laundry, and worked on my KidFit Class tonight, and some moves I am going to be trying out in Total Body H.I.I.T. later tonight! So excited! Full recap later.
Lunch time rolled around, and I called Emily for some lunch inspiration. She suggested a breakfast burrito, which sounded bueno to me! Any excuse to continually eat breakfast food all day is A-ok in my book.
Started out with some ground veggie sausage, and browned it in a small pan:
Added 3 eggs (2 whites, and a yolk) and some cheesy goodness:
Cooked it all up, and put it in one of my FAVORITE Pitas.
Added a nice big Gala Apple, and lunch was served!
Perfect, thanks Em! It was a great idea. 🙂
Heres some doggy love for the day:
Perfect day so far. I didn’t make it to see my third graders yesterday, so I am going today! Gotta rush over there…then head to Johnson City for KidFit…BACK to Kingsport for Total Body…and then working at the front desk from 7ish to 9:30. There goes my night! 🙂
Have fun everyone, play nice!
