My breakfast this morning was the oat parfait above. Lunch was a couple more leftover crepes, red pepper and cukes, and an iced cappuccino. I made a quinoa dish for dinner:
- 3/4 cup quinoa (rinse well)
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 light coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tsp curry
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 chopped cucumber
- 1 chopped tomato
- 1 cup chickpeas
Mix the first 7 ingredients in a pot, and bring to a boil. Once boiled, remove from heat and simmer on LOW on another burner for 17-20 minutes covered. Toss in cukes, tomato, and chickpeas, and stir to warm.
