Quinoa for breakfast

Shani decided to go back on the Clean Program to try and get back some much needed energy.  In theory, this is accomplished by cutting out a whole ton of foods. (As if I didn’t have a hard enough time cooking for this girl!) This means I’m basically on the Clean Program as well.  (Though I refuse to give up coffee and wine!)

Her staple breakfast during the week is a smoothy followed by a hard boiled egg and piece of turkey bacon.  Well eggs and bacon are not part of the Clean Program. I don’t particularly like smoothies very much which leaves me looking for breakfast alternatives.  What I came up with is a nice change of pace as well as a great alternative to oatmeal on those cold winter days.

Ingredients Used:

  • 1 cup cooked Quinoa
  • 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup berries
  • 1/4 pineapple chunks
  • agave to taste

Heat in the microwave for about 45 seconds.  Enjoy!

If you’ve tried any cleanse, what was your favorite meal to start the day?
