I spy a new trend arising from ancient times: grain porridge aka hot cereal in the am. Try everything from quinoa to sorghum to amaranth and beyond. Just cook your grains with a delicious coconut or almond milk, add a touch of honey, some berries and Greek yogurt, and you have the perfect morning starter to a fabulous day! Total bonus? Some of these grains like quinoa and amaranth are gluten-free! Yippee! Great for all people xx
1 cup amaranth (gluten-free grain, naturally!) (or try rolled oats! YUM!)
1 cup coconut milk beverage or almond milk
2 cups water
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 cup mixed berries (I love blueberries, strawberries & blackberries)
1 tablespoon local, grade A honey or agave nectar
2 tablespoons almond butter, natural (optional) for protein!
2 tablespoons 0% Greek yogurt
flax seed meal
1- In a medium saucepan, boil the two cups water and 1 cup coconut milk beverage or almond milk. When water boils, pour in the amaranth and reduce heat to a light simmer and add ¼ teaspoon sea salt. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until a porridge like consistency forms.
2- When the amaranth is all cooked through, pour into two bowls. Top with 1 tablespoon each of the almond butter, if using, yogurt and honey. Take your instagram photo, and then mix it all to eat! Top each bowl with your choice of mixed berries and almond/coconut milk if desired. Sprinkle with some flax seed meal! Enjoy for a delicious fiber and protein filled power breakfast this weekend!
YUM! xx ck
