Sweet & Savory Quinoa Breakfast Bowl


Even though I’m not the biggest fan of traditional breakfast food, I almost always wake up  starving.  In fact, I can skip dinner fairly easily…but breakfast, not a chance.

One of my favorite ways to start the day is with a quinoa breakfast bowl.   Many times this will consist of quinoa, beans, veggies, avocado and hummus.  But lately, I’ve been loving this easy breakfast bowl that actually almost resembles breakfast food.

Since it comes together in just a few minutes, it is perfect for those mornings where Skye is up before 5am and the rest of the house is sleeping for a couple more hours.


I love those quite moments where the two of us are having breakfast together.

She’s not quite ready for this dish just yet, but she does do fairly well with quinoa, especially if I mix it with avocado.


What’s your favorite way to start the day?

    You know I love quinoa, and this sweet/savory mix (with goat cheese – yum!!!) sounds fabulous! I have to smile at your description of ideal breakfasts including things like veggies, beans and avocados – I’m right there with ya! This bowl is the perfect marriage of more traditional breakfast flavors with “our kinda breakfast”! Pinning for sure! Happy weekend to you! 😀 ~Shelley

      So glad I’m not the only one who is different about breakfast! My family thinks I am crazy. Hope you are doing well Shelley!
