I keep trying to get healthier …
Good news… Strike that… GREAT NEWS! Prolo therapy with Okanagan Naturopathic Healthcare is working! My foot is feeling better and I even ran (I use the term “ran” loosely) yesterday! This is good news as I start the Fresh Air Ladies Running clinic on Wednesday! (Join me!) Why was I running? Because yesterday I started an Idol Fit Boot camp! It’s not too late to join in the fun! More – HERE.
Today is Meatless Monday! I wanted to share with you a great breakfast from my trainer Ryan Brown at Idol Fit! You can get more recipes from Ryan HERE!
Let me know how this works for you! I have been making a big batch every Sunday that I use for the week.. I actually like it cold better than hot!
Apple Crumble Quoinoa:
Makes 4 servings
1 cup red quinoa, rinsed and drained
2 cups water
1 tablespoon butter
1 apple – peeled, cored and diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 tablespoon half-and-half cream, or to taste (optional)
Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the apple, and sprinkle with salt, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Stir in the almonds; cook and stir until the apple is hot and beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the almond milk and half-and-half cream; continue cooking until hot. Stir in the hot quinoa, and cook a few minutes before serving.
Keep this breakfast in fridge for up to 5 days and eat cold, this breakfast can be actually fast than cereal. Make sure to mix up the fruits once in a while, you can also sprinkle a bit of protein powder of choice on this if need be. Try maple syrup/cane sugar/stevia/honey once in a while to mix up the sweetness.
