It’s been a crazy week. It’s the kids’ first week of summer vacation and we are already waist deep in summer activities. And I am determined to NOT skip breakfast. It’s hard for me. I’ve never, ever been a breakfast person, but the way I’ve been eating lately has caused me to feel so amazing, I don’t want to change it just because my schedule changes. Seriously, this non-morning loving person has been waking up between 5:00-6:00 a.m. just about every day – waaaaay before my alarm is set to go off. And I haven’t been going to bed any earlier. It’s just the elimination of junk from my diet, and in it’s place, healthy foods. Crazy. Who knew that eating right makes you feel better? What? Lots of people? I guess I’ve just been stubborn.
Anyway, this has been my go-to breakfast for the past week. I don’t have to think about it. I don’t have to do much, other than make sure I don’t burn the quinoa.
It’s really simple. Cooked quinoa (I cook about 1/4 cup of dry quinoa to get this much), with a little unsweetened almond milk, some blueberries, strawberries, and some Truvia sprinkled on top of it all. Along with this, I drink a cup of low-fat Kefir. Kefir is fairly new to me. I had to read up on it to convince myself to try it. It’s full of the healthy bacteria that our bodies need. Ok, sounds like a keeper to me! (Get it? Keeper? Kefir?) To my plain, unsweetened, low-fat Kefir I add a squirt of Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme Flavored Liquid Stevia, 2-Ounce Bottle. Stir it up and drink it down.
This is my kind of cooking. Tasty and healthy!
