Last time, I shared why intermittent fasting does NOT work for most women – and what to do instead. There is another great option for women that won’t mess with your hormones, so head on over there to check it out if you haven’t already.
So today, I want to share a great recipe for right after a fasting period ends and your window for eating begins.
Even if you aren’t doing intermittent fasting, this is an awesome breakfast for refueling your body to face the day. It combines nuts, seeds, and berries with quinoa that has been cooked with nut milk instead of water, plus an aromatic blend of spices.
If this doesn’t give you energy that lasts until lunchtime, I don’t know what will! So give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
Spiced Quinoa Power Breakfast
INGREDIENTS [Serves 2]
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped
2 tbsp. hemp seeds
2 tbsp. sunflower seeds (ideally soaked overnight)
2 tbsp. chia seeds
2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 tsp. vanilla (I prefer 2 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Pinch ground cloves
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch ground ginger
2 pitted dates
Optional: Additional almond or coconut milk for serving
Blend almond milk with dates in the blender. Next, combine the almond milk and date mixture with cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger in a pot then add the quinoa. Bring to a boil, then cover and lower the heat to simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
Spoon the breakfast quinoa into bowls and top each serving with almonds, hemp seeds, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, blueberries, and chia seeds. Add extra almond or coconut milk if desired.
