warm cozy protein packed breakfast

No picture. sorry.

This mornings breakfast was warm and cozy and packed with complete protein.


I cooked the quinoa following the package directions (I do drain it in water but it's tricky because it's so small. I just put it in a bowl, run cold water over it, then dump out the cold water as carefully as I can without dumping out the quinoa.)

After the quinoa was cooked in plain old water I added 2 TBS. coconut oil and a dash of cinnamon.

I thought it was good!
Jeff liked it, minus the texture which he is still getting used to.
Emmett (our 1 1/2 year old) liked it.
Braxton was a so, so. He liked the flavor but wanted to have cereal (Chex) instead. I didn't let him and he didn't fuss. I did give him a dash of pure maple syrup and that helped!
Adelle is typically picky and she ate it up (after I added a dash of pure maple syrup!)

We will be having this again. Even if it's not a family favorite it's good for them to learn to eat lots of foods even if they aren't your favorite!


  1. This post made me think of a recipe I found about a year ago (and haven't tried yet :)) that is similar,
    She has her recipes categorized by ingredients on the left side and they all look pretty good and healthy. I need to start eating healthier even when I don't want to, thanks for the reminder/inspiration!!

  2. poor kids tell them they can come over and eat cinnamon toast crunch any day at aunties house :) hahaha kidding, I tried it too and it wasn't that bad and I have been doing your raw food thing for a day and a half now and I am surprised at how not hungry I am so we will see I wish I could stick to things I really try but gosh I love donuts.
