This is a fresh tropical tasting breakfast that is as filling as it is tasty!
In this week before Christmas I decided to clean up my diet so I have set aside 4 days to eat really cleanly, removing Wheat, dairy, caffeine, Alcohol and meat from my diet. Thankfully my fiancé is on board as we have both been feeling a little sluggish.
You will need
I/2 cup of quinoa flakes, cooked with 1 cup of water.
5 smashed almonds dry roasted unsalted is best but raw great too. ( Beaten with a mortar and pestle or the handle end of a knife)
A tablespoon of shredded coconut
A dash of soy/ almond or rice milk.
a teaspoon of sunflower and Pepita seeds (optional)
This recipe is made with Quinoa flakes, You can get them from health food stores and even some supermarkets. My local Woolworths has them.Quinoa is a protein rich super food rich in Iron, amino acids and magnesium with a lower carb content than other grains or oats.
To Cook the Quinoa you just prepare like you would a bowl of oats either on stove for 3 mins until they thicken or in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Transfer into a bowl and top with chopped fresh Nectarine, shredded coconut, smashed Almonds and some sunflower seeds.
Add a dash of Soy, Almond or Rice milk and there’s your yummy brekky!
Its tropical, light, fresh and super tasty! In fact is so yummy I chopped up some nectarines again, added some coconut and almonds for a snack in the afternoon too..
