I am always looking for ways to re-create a healthy version of my favorite childhood foods. Okay let’s be real, cereal was also a favorite food of mine in college. This is one of many breakfasts that I have created to satisfy this burning cereal desire within me.
The yogurt contains the creamy element. The nuts represent the much required crunch. The strawberries provide the sweet component. The cinnamon provides the comfort element.
- 3/4 cup greek yogurt (can use goat-milk yogurt too)
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 8-10 raw almonds, chopped
- 1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 2-3 strawberries, sliced
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy a simple/ quick and balanced cold breakfast cereal.
Note: toasted nuts add another element of flavor to this dish. To keep things exciting, switch around with different types of nuts and berries.
