July 12th, 2018 | no comments

Looking for a quick, nutritious, and economically delicious breakfast or lunch that costs a mere $2.81 to prepare? Seek no further! Yes, seriously… $2.81:

  • 1 small avocado: $1.00
  • 1 free range egg: $0.38
  • 2 tablespoons of store bought hummus: $0.60 (make your own hummus using THIS EASY RECIPE and you’ll save $$!)
  • 1 organic apple: $0.83

           TOTAL: $2.81

And, by hard boiling the eggs ahead of time, you will really cut down on prep time! This recipe uses some of my favorite all-time foods and is a nice balance of carbs (from the apple and hummus), protein (from the egg and hummus), and fat (from the avocado and hummus)…which means it will keep you satisfied for hours! 

Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Savory Hot Breakfast Cereal (that’s not oatmeal)

May 3rd, 2018 | no comments

Are you bored with the same old tired bowl of oatmeal for breakfast? Looking to mix things up a bit? Then you are going to love this recipe. Rather than oatmeal, it incorporates I Heart Keenwah Toasted Quinoa Hot Cereal, a flaked quinoa that cook up in a mere minute and has the consistency of Cream of Wheat. 

I’ve found that when I make my hot cereal savory, it tends to have more staying power and hunger seems to stay away for at least a good four hours. Why savory? Because you can easily add protein-rich foods like eggs or chicken and creamy textures like butter and avocado. You can also sneak in a serving of vegetables by mixing in leftover roasted vegetables from last night’s dinner. (HINT: Always roast more vegetables than you will eat for dinner so you will have leftovers for your savory breakfast!) 

Quinoa is technically a seed, which makes this recipe grain and gluten-free!

Savory Hot Breakfast Cereal (that's not oatmeal)
I prefer my hot cereal on the savory side by adding leftover roasted vegetables, diced avocado and hard boiled egg, sliced almonds, grass fed butter, sea salt and pepper. You could also substitute leftover chicken for the egg--it's just as yummy and filling! This recipe is grain and gluten free. 2 Earthfoods per serving: ♥♥
