Eating breakfast isn't something I do enough. Yes, yes, that is a terrible thing to say but with two kids and a clock ticking for me to get in the car and head to work somehow the easiest thing to strip away is my breakfast. With a half cup of coffee drunk, we are off to races! Thankfully summer and the explosion of timelines is a reminder that actually I need breakfast to keep me from snapping at those around me and to just fuel up for what the day brings. I have been experimenting with ideas for easy get up and go breakfasts and landed on this protein packed meal that kept me full way past lunchtime even! I made it mostly overnight and then just warmed it up for the rest of week.
1 cup of quinoa and 1 cup of steel cut oats soak overnight in water and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Then rinse in the morning in a strainer and toss into a saucepan with almond milk. Bring to a simmer and stir for about ten minutes. Place in a bowl and top with anything! I did cinnamon, raspberries, and almonds. And then just heated up the leftovers and had a hot belly warming meal every morning. It was quite delightful.
