quinoa breakfast bowls

Don’t worry, I’m not going to turn into a proselytizing health blogger — two weeks of clean eating does not an expert make — but after the great response from yesterday’s Hungry for Change post I thought I would share my nutritious favorites now and then.

Starting with a simple breakfast that helped me overcome my morning chicken biscuit dependence.

I first stumbled upon quinoa breakfast bowls on Pinterest (of course I did) and thought, “who the heck eats quinoa for breakfast?

Schooled: Quinoa is a gluten-free whole grain that packs a lot of protein. It’s also a great source of fiber, iron and magnesium; so it’s a perfect way to jumpstart your day.

To save precious time in the morning, I cook a big batch of quinoa at the beginning of the week. I divide it up into Ziplock containers, and store them in the fridge so they’re easy to grab before running out the door. I take a minute to toss in whatever fixin’s I want for the day, and hit the road.

Pretend you’re at Coldstone and whip that quinoa bowl into a nutritious breakfast sundae with any (or all) of these healthy mix-ins:

  • organic honey
  • sliced almonds
  • coconut flakes
  • cacao nibs
  • ground flax
  • fresh fruit and berries
  • Greek yogurt
  • cinnamon
  • a dash of raw sugar

    I love healthy eating. ..

  • Katy 01/30/2014 at 5:01 pm

    Did you make your quinoa with water, milk or a type of broth?

  • Sara @ My Size: Healthy 01/30/2014 at 4:46 pm

    Never would have thought of this! Sounds delicious :) I’ve only tried to make quinoa a couple of times, and somehow, it comes out still too wet even though I made it by the directions. I’m sure this makes me sound like a total twit in the kitchen! HA

  • Wandering Iris 01/30/2014 at 2:41 pm

    Thank you for this post. I’ve had Quinoa in my pantry and haven’t done anything with it. It never occurred to me to have it for breakfast. I’m just glad I still have 2 baggies of strawberries from summer left in my freezer. Your photo makes it look so yummy.

  • alisonsye 01/30/2014 at 2:02 pm

    I am actually going to give this a try, I really am.

  • eahlay 01/29/2014 at 1:18 pm

    Great idea! I always have quinoa in the house so I’ll definitely try this. This sounds better than overnight oats.

    • keiralennox 01/29/2014 at 2:49 pm

      I’ve seen recipes for overnight oats. I haven’t tried them; maybe I’ll give those a go soon, too!

  • beautyweetjewatjes 01/29/2014 at 1:16 pm

    Yum that sounds (and looks) good ! :)

  • Amanda Pamblanco 01/29/2014 at 12:27 pm

    Never thought to eat quinoa for breakfast!

  • insidemywonderland7 01/29/2014 at 11:52 am

    I’m starting to get into a healthy routine so I’ll be looking forward to more posts like these! Thanks for sharing! :)

  • Amy 01/29/2014 at 11:39 am

    yummy

  • elkee 01/29/2014 at 11:21 am

    Yes! As a Quinoa addict I fully support this recipe. I eat quinoa for breakfast, lunch dinner. Quinoa and Kale are the loves of my life! I cant wait to try it.

    • keiralennox 01/29/2014 at 2:50 pm

      I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoy raw kale! Let me know what you think when you try it.

  • fatfreefashion 01/29/2014 at 11:10 am

    Yummy! I’m trying this recipe. Getting bored of oatmeal.

    • keiralennox 01/29/2014 at 2:52 pm

      I burned myself out on oatmeal a few years ago. After eating it every morning for almost six months, I can’t even look at it now ;) I think you’ll like this as an alternative!

  • Alexandra 01/29/2014 at 10:58 am

    Sounds great! I do something similar with steel cut oats.. I’m going to have to try this!

  • hmfjewels 01/29/2014 at 10:45 am

    That looks delicious!

  • canberly 01/29/2014 at 10:39 am

    Looks really good! Do you prep in advance?

    http://www.lovein201.wordpress.com

    • keiralennox 01/29/2014 at 2:52 pm

      I do! I make the quinoa ahead of time and store it in Ziplock containers I can grab-and-go.

  • Emily Charlotte 01/29/2014 at 10:33 am

    Looks so delicious! I just made cookies using only rolled oats, bananas, walnuts and cinammon; completely guilt free snacking!!

    • keiralennox 01/29/2014 at 2:53 pm

      That sounds awesome! I’m on the hunt for healthy snacks to satisfy my sweet tooth. I’ll have to give those cookies a try!

      • Emily Charlotte 01/29/2014 at 2:54 pm

        Yeh they are amazing. Just make sure the bananas are ripe and bake in the oven for 15 minutes! Enjoy xx
