Breakfast can be a challenge. I haven’t been able to eat eggs on their own for almost four years. I try to vary my breakfast options. Sometimes I’ll have biscuits, or sausage patties with veggies or sweet potato bacon hash . Other times I’ll make smoothies or have my chia seed cereal.

Tropical Ancient Grains Breakfast Bowl

After making this delicious tropical ancient grains cereal, I realized that it tasted great served warm or cold. You can make a batch and eat it all week! Great for those busy mornings! It’s also fabulous as a snack!! For added protein you can add some pumpkin seeds to the top after cooking.

  1. Anything breakfast is a win in my book. 😉 This sounds delicious! A great alternative for those of us who can’t eat oats. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing this at Savoring Saturdays, Sandi!

  2. What a fabulous sounding breakfast! I haven’t made quinoa for breakfast in awhile. I love the tropical take on it and I like that it’s good hot or cold – I’m all about make ahead breakfasts!
