Quinoa for Breakfast

As I crawl out of bed at almost 1pm today, I think about all the horrible food decisions I made yesterday. It was fun and worth it at the time, but now it’s time to get back on track.

The thing about Sundays is all I wanna do is be lazy and eat and drink. So going out for pub food and beers was fun, sure. And making pierogis and popcorn together in the same pan (ingenious!) at 3 am was also a hoot. But it’s Monday now and it’s time to get off that dirty weekend binge eating boat.

My cupboard and fridge are pretty lacking in anything. I suppose that’s part of the reason I was eating pierogis and popcorn. But I’m hungry and I will find something!

It’s ok no need to panic, I found something! Phew.

Transfer to serving bowl and top with hemp hearts. Enjoy the feel goodness of quinoa!

Fell free to experiment with the dried fruits you put in, these are just some of my favourites. I feel like apple could go really well in it. Let me know what works for you!

Makes 2 servings.
