It’s the last day of January! How the heck did this month go by so quickly?! Especially when it’s the worst month of the year, in my opinion! Christmas is over, it’s still dark, cold, and rainy, and there’s no holidays or days off to look forward to. At least by February, we’ve got a little more light in the day and we can start looking forward to March and Spring, glorious Spring!
Good riddance, January! 😉
But because we’re still in the depths of Winter, I’m still on the cozy breakfast train. And because most of us are tired of eating oatmeal for the past few months – let’s switch it up!
Today let’s eat QUINOA for breakfast!
Are you keen on quinoa? Because I sure am. 😉
Quinoa is most often eaten as a side on your dinner plate, or as part of a hearty salad. But hear me out – quinoa also makes a delicious and very nutritious breakfast bowl.
In Nordic countries, rice pudding is a popular breakfast. With all their cold, dark winters, those tough Nordic people really know their cozy breakfasts!
It’s been a slog getting through the last of Winter here (wait a minute, it’s supposed to be “Spring” now, isn’t it?!) – we’ve had endless days of non-stop rain. The sun shone one day last week and I felt like a brand new person! I’m hoping this Breakfast Rice Pudding with Quick Almond Granola will help get me through…
I’ve just found my new favourite flavour of Overnight Oats: Carrot Cake. Shredded carrots combine with plump raisins, fragrant cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and mix together with oats and chia seeds to make Carrot Cake Overnight Oats!
Carrot Cake for breakfast?! There’s nothing better. And these oats are actually healthy – only sweetened with a tablespoon of maple syrup.
It’s February! Can you believe it? The countdown to Valentine’s Day is on!
Over the next couple of weeks I will share some of my favourite Valentine’s Day-inspired breakfasts – because Valentine’s breakfast is way better than Valentine’s dinner, amiright?! Maybe I’m biased, but I’ll take a homemade breakfast in bed over going out for dinner any day. Serve these Fluffy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes to your sweetie with a mug of steaming coffee and watch their face light up with joy.
