Chilly But Toasted

in All Posts

I am happy to hear that lots of other people brush their teeth in the shower and talk to their pet.  No one else kissed Ricky Martin, though…

It is dreary and cold out.  I would like to be back in bed.  But alas – the show must carry on!

 

This show must get her booty to the grocery store today.  We’re out of most of the staples, so I was forced to get creative for breakfast… Toasted Quinoa!

I spotted this tri-color quinoa at the store last week and had to pick it up – so pretty!  While quinoa is normally boiled, you can also ‘toast’ it in the oven.  It makes an excellent, crunchy granola substitute. 

 

Crunch, crunch, crunch.

I used this recipe as a base but mixed in molasses, honey, and sliced almonds.  With Greek yogurt and blueberries…. Perfecto.

 

Thought of the Day

 

I posted this on the HTP Facebook page but simply can’t resist reposting here.  It makes me laugh every time I see it!

    Omg, hysterical. I hate chaturanga too, I can relate to T-Rex even with long arms.

    I love quinoa but have ever only boiled it. I can’t wait to try it toasted! I used to brush my teeth in the shower after swim practice to save time. Not sure why I stopped though

    That tricolor quinoa is gorgeous! I really need to get some now, I want to try this recipe… it looks like a great way to get some protein in the AM.
    I assume it would work the same with agave nectar instead of maple syrup or molasses?
