New Years Resolution

I have two major resolutions for 2012 that i’m excited to really work on!

#1- Eat breakfast

#2- Go gluten free

So here’s a recipe that helps me accomplish both of these resolutions!

Quinoa Strawberry Coconut Pudding

1/2 cup of quinoa

1 tsp. good vanilla extract

2 tsp. Truvia or 1/5 cup sugar

2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (I like the native forest brand out of the can)

pinch of salt

1/4 cup unsweetened toasted coconut

a few sliced almonds

1/2 cup sliced strawberries plus a few slices for garnish

This is a super simple recipe that is not only good for you, but good tasting too!

Start by combining the coconut milk, vanilla, salt, and sugar in a sauce pan. Bring it to a simmer and then add the quinoa. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the pudding has the texture that you desire. Mix in the chopped strawberries and then let it cool. Garnish with more sliced strawberries, some almonds, and toasted coconut!

It’s always so hard for me to eat breakfast, but with this gluten free and flavorful option i’m jumping out of bed!


One thought on “New Years Resolution

  1. Bisquick makes a GF pancake mix that is great! I make up a batch (about 7 pancakes) and I eat one and put the rest in the freezer in ziploc bags for the rest of the week. I just heat them up in the microwave (20 sec. on one side then 20 on the other) and they are perfect! Its a good quick start breakfast that’s an alternative to Chex and Rice Krispies!!
