Cereal love

breakfastcereal

I’ve never been too big on sizzling, savory breakfasts in the early mornings. I’m a cereal lover. Upon waking, I crave sweet carbs. I love cold mik over crunchy granola or warm bowls of cooked grains like quinoa, amaranth, and oats. I always add generous amounts of fruit, seeds, and nuts for varied texture and flavor. Most of the breakfast dishes I make happen to be vegetarian or vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free. It’s important to me that my first meal fuels many working hours before I have to break for lunch, so I focus on using ingredients that are protein-rich and high in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and essential amino acids. This morning I enjoyed some homemade granola (this time adding pumpkin seeds to the basic original recipe) flooded in a fresh batch of hemp milk with a diced bartlett pear. I tend to get pretty blissed-out over even the simplest homemade meals. This morning’s bowl of goodness was no exception, so I had to share it.

    You’ve got me hooked! I tried amaranth for the first time a couple of weeks ago and started off indifferent…but now I can’t stop eating it! Practically every morning I eat a hearty amaranth porridge topped with just about anything and everything in my cupboard: pepitas, gojis, coconut, flax, chia, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and a chopped apple or pear. YUM. Thanks for the inspiration!
