For a filling and delicious breakfast, try this protein-packed delicious breakfast. I adapted it from a recipe from one of those health food mags V sends me (Taste for Life). I made a big batch and will eat this all week.

1 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups water

1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water

½ cup shredded coconut
½ cup sliced almonds
½ cup raisins
1 t chia seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash or so of cardamom
Dash of salt
(add whatever dried fruits or nuts or seeds you want – it’s all about your favourite taste)

  1. 1.       Boil 2 cups of water. Add 1 cup of quinoa. When water is soaked up, put quinoa into a bowl to the side.
  2. 2.       Boil 4 cups of water. Add steel cut oats. When it comes back to a boil, lower the heat. Once all the water is absorbed, turn off heat.
  3. 3.       You can toast the coconut and the almonds if you want, but you don’t have to. Just keep an eye on toasting them if you do.
  4. 4.       Add all of the ingredients together. Stir.
  5. 5.       Eat. I prefer with lots of milk or some good Brown Cow vanilla yogurt.
