Newbie – Nutrient Packed Breakfast

  The other night I got home from the gym and was in need of a quick dinner/recovery meal. I was fortunate enough to have made a large batch of plain quinoa earlier that day. (I love making about 4 cups of grains to store in my fridge for moments just like this one.) I currently have a love for almond butter, cinnamon, and banana mixed together. See previous post for another great breakfast with these same ingredients.  I decided to just throw everything together in a bowl hoping that it would turn out okay, I was delighted with the flavors! It was so delish, i decided to serve it for breakfast the next day for the kiddos. I got mixed reviews, but 3 out of four gobbled it up. That’s when I know it’s blog worthy. 

Nutrient Packed Breakfast


1 cup plain quinoa

1 small banana

2 tbsp Almond Butter

cinnamon to taste


In a small bowl place quinoa, then sliced banana, sprinkle with cinnamon, and top with a large drizzle of almond butter. This meal can be served warm or cold.  If you would like, add a dash of your favorite plant milk.
