It’s Week 3 of the Activia® Challenge and I am feeling great. Increasing my yogurt intake to 200g daily has been easy and delicious.
I have loved trying all kinds of Activia® yogurt and settled in that my favorites are the Greek Vanilla, Greek Mango, Regular Strawberry Rhubarb and Fat-Free Peach. But, truthfully I have loved every single flavor I’ve tried. The extra protein and probiotics have left me feeling full and satisfied without any digestive discomfort.
My boys and I have been experimenting with different recipes and toppings for our yogurt. The boys have settled on eating it right from the container and I have dipped fruit in it, made parfaits with granola and even added my breakfast cereal to yogurt.
I am excited to share my favorite breakfast recipe that I know I will be eating months after the challenge is over. It’s light, full of protein and absolutely delicious.
The simplicity of this recipe may make you challenge whether you’d enjoy this dish. Quinoa for breakfast? Yes, quinoa for breakfast.
You can eat the quinoa hot or cold depending on your preference and the flavor of cinnamon and ginger are subtle but delicious. Top with your favorite granola, berries or coconut for a delicious and healthy breakfast.
Have kids? Let them top their quinoa breakfast bowl with their favorite toppings for a breakfast dish everyone will like.
In a hurry? Put the quinoa into a container, add your toppings and yogurt and you are out the door with breakfast in hand.
