Coconut Flaxseed Cereal

I’m a child of the 80’s and I grew up on sugary cereal that changed the color of milk.
Plus cereal would leave me hungry just an hour later.

As an adult, my body is more sensitive to gluten.
I’ve given up the cereal breakfast habit and replaced with healthier options.

You’ll be surprised how filling this simple breakfast cereal can be, especially if coconut milk is used.
Makes 1-2 servings

1/2 cup coconut milk, whole dairy milk or unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup ground flaxseeds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Optional: 1/4 cup berries

Combine milk, flaxseeds, coconut in microwavable bowl & microwave for 1 minute.
Top with cinnamon and berries.
Can also be served cold.

Thai Quinoa Salad

Do you eat carbs?
I do, but I am selective and limit servings.
Carbs give us energy but aren’t created equally. Choose carbs found in nature that contain fiber. (Avoid the crash & burn) My favs are sweet potato, oats and quinoa.
I ❤️ this Thai Quinoa Salad.
Make this on Sunday for lunches for the week or as a side dish.
I store servings in mason jars for grab-n-go.

(use food processor to save time chopping😉)

1 cup cook quinoa
2 cups grated carrots (~2 large)
2 cups grated purple cabbage
3 green onions, sliced
1 cup mint leaves, chopped
1 cup basil leaves, chopped
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
