I was inspired to create this for brekky after trying something similar when I was at the Hamilton Island Instameet a couple of weekends ago. They had a ‘make-your-own’ adventure breakfast bar set up with countless numbers of nuts, grains, fruits, yoghurts, seeds etc to choose from. I went for something so yummy and healthy that I have since replicated it in my own kitchen for the last 7 days in a row. I am actually obsessed- so yummy and so good for you.
So, what is in this breakfast creation? The main ingredient is super-grain, Quinoa (cook this first about 1/2 cup per person), LSA (ground linseed, almonds and sunflower seeds, 2 Tbspns), Chia seeds (1 Tbspn black or white), Yoghurt (1/2 cup), roasted slivered almonds (2 Tbspns), fresh fruit (whatever you fancy) and a good squeeze of honey on top. Mix it all up and voila, get in ma’ belly!
What I love about this breakfast is that it covers all of the essentials- fibre, protein, dairy, vitamins, minerals and good fats.
Cooked quinoa looks like this:
All of the ingredients in a bowl before you mix them:
Post mix and pre consumption- oh yum!
