I hope everyone had/is having a great Spring Break!!
Over my Spring Break, I was able to read The Hunger Games and it was just amazing! It was so very different than any other books I have read but I really enjoyed it. I love how strong Katniss is and the cute relationship she and Peeta develop. I won’t give away anything else but let me just say, the ending was insane!! I have the other two books in the series, Catching Fire & Mockingjay, but will probably wait until this semester is over to read those. Have you read The Hunger Games yet?
The other day I stumbled upon a great recipe from Carrots ‘N Cake – Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Couscous. This recipe inspired me to use what I had on hand, so I made it with quinoa instead of the couscous and applesauce instead of the pumpkin because I didn’t have any on hand. I linked to her original recipe, but I will post my adaptations below.
*Apple & Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bowl*
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/4 cup unsweetened appleasuce
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp. ground chia seed
- Combine everything in a pot and turn to medium heat.
- Stir frequently until it thickens.
- Remove from heat, top with whatever you fancy, and enjoy!
This tasted SO GOOD and I love it as a change-up from oatmeal. I might try an overnight version..we shall see 🙂
Favorite book as of late?
Do you like quinoa?
