Cooking in Bulk

Thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes on yesterday’s post! 😀

Last night I noticed I was out of oatmeal, eggs, cereal, and every other breakfast food so I decided to make coconut breakfast quinoa. And lots of it.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa + 2 cups of water (All cooked in the pot for 15 minutes first)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp flax + 3 Tbsp water (used in place of eggs)
  • 1 banana (melt for 30 seconds in the microwave)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut extract
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp honey + 1 Tbsp all natural sugar (or any sweetener/more honey)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Directions

This recipe is super easy. Just cook the 1 cup of quinoa with 2 cups of water in a big pot (bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes). Then add the remaining ingredients to the cooked quinoa, stirring it all together. Feel free to add other ingredients like berries or nuts. I refrigerate mine and heat some up in the morning for breakfast.

Now I’ve got my breakfast for the rest of the week. Success!

Cooking in bulk is my thing right now

I made two flavors of spaghetti squash for lunch or dinner this week.

My bulk meal last week revolved around an eggplant.

So my meals have been rather repetitive but the desserts have been on point of course!
