Quinoa Porridge

How is it already the last week of June? Didn’t we just celebrate New Year’s? This year is seriously flying by! But 2017, you’ve been a good one so far. Let’s keep those vibes high.

Want to know a fun fact? My amazing friend, Sage, once told me that spirulina and quinoa are two high-vibrational foods. Yep, food has energies beyond the c-word, my friends (and by c-word, I mean calories). According to the Ancient Greeks, eating foods close to the ground helped to move our bodies towards a higher consciousness. By raising our vibrations, we also start to feel better because we’re living in our purest form: love.

I know, I know, I’m sounding a little out there, but since starting my meditation journey back in April, I feel like I’m finally starting shift my vibes higher and be who I really am supposed to be. This journey that we call life is starting to get a little less scary, and a lot more fun.

And what could be more fun than eating quinoa first thing in the morning?! Alright, I’m sure a lot of you are thinking, “Gee, Britt, let me think…a lot of things!” but before you poo-poo it, hear me out. This quinoa porridge is legit.

Warming.

Creamy.

Toasty.

Slightly sweet.

Heavenly.

Oh, yeah. I’m about it. It’s basically oats, but in a different form! Throw on your favorite toppings, and you’ve got yourself a high vibin’ bowl of goodness, all before you start the day. Now that’s a win in my book.

Check the recipe below, and let me know what you think!

Quinoa Porridge

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup organic quinoa, uncooked and rinsed
  • ¾ cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp organic vanilla extract
  • Favorite Toppings (I love any berries, figs, bananas, cacao nibs, chia seeds, hemp seeds, nut butters, the list goes on!)

Directions:

  1. Heat a saucepan on the stove and lightly toast the raw quinoa seeds until they start popping (this helps to get that toasty flavor!).
  2. Pour milk into small pot and add toasted quinoa, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Cook according to directions of quinoa package.
  3. Once cooked (about 20 minutes), transfer to a bowl and top with your favorite toppings. Add more almond milk if you’d like. Enjoy!
