Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

June 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

I know, you may be thinking, “quinoa for breakfast? That’s crazy.” Not too fast my friends because it is totally awesome. Just add some sweet elements, fruit, yogurt and nuts/seeds of your choice and boom! you’ve . My go to bowl for a few days was nectarines, blueberries, plain greek yogurt, sunflower seeds, cinnamon and honey.


  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • half a nectarine, cut into pieces
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp honey

To Make

Put your quinoa as a base in the bowl. If warm, no need to preheat but you can warm in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add greek yogurt, blueberries and nectarine to the bowl. Sprinkle sunflower and chia seeds, cinnamon and drizzle honey on top. Enjoy!


Almond Milk with Coffee Ice Cubes

June 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

I love me a new coffee-type beverage and this one is super tasty. But it’s so easy it may not even be a recipe. It’s just something I saw someone post on Facebook, tried and am now obsessed with. It does require some thought because you have to make coffee ice cubes. I typically designate one ice cube tray to coffee. Whenever I have some leftovers from my french press I simply add some. They’re great for iced coffee or this tasty almond drink.

Unsweetened vanilla almond milk is my favorite and I simply add a little honey to this to sweeten to taste. If you prefer sweet non-dairy milk you can do that too. Whatever you want to do, it’s your game. Make it and totally up your morning game.


  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 4-5 coffee ice cubes
  • 2 tsp honey or agave

To Make

1) Milk sweetener of choice in with almond milk. Add coffee ice cubes and enjoy!
