Gluten-Free Almond Quinoa Breakfast

Quinoa-Breakfast_0045

The past few weeks….I’ve been watching people all around me, lovely normal people comparing themselves to other people, or who they think they should be or who they think they should look like. And then what happens? They feel bad about themselves and make choices that don’t honor who they are.

Quinoa-Breakfast_0047

And it makes me so sad every time I see a person reject themselves…

Do you know what I mean?

Because when anyone compares their body, business, job, bank account, relationship….whatever, to others – well, then they are really just rejecting yourself, aren’t they?

We all know that rejecting ourselves isn’t good news. And comparing ourselves to others surely isn’t either.

Quinoa-Breakfast_0046
And I get it… I used to compare myself A LOT. I think most of us do. We just don’t talk about it.

Right?

And so this crazy comparing cycle continues.

I see it a lot here in NYC and everywhere I travel.

Girls who are 15. Women who are 50. Boys who are 28. And so forth….

So, instead of comparing ourselves to others, how about doing a few nice things this week? Here are a few that I’m going to be doing….what will do you for yourself this week?

Buying myself fresh flowers.

Quinoa-Breakfast_0044

Treating myself to an organic green juice every day.

Staying positive. Because…it’s not easy if your health flops but stay strong and move on. I’m happy to honestly say that It’s OKAY to say that you had a bad day or that your life isn’t easy. I know what it’s like when you’re stuck not feeling well with nowhere to turn and you feel like you are going to a million doctors but no one is helping you…when you are spending all of your waking hours dedicated to your health.

I know.

Quinoa-Breakfast_0042

I get it.

But you can go beyond that.

And treat yourself to something every day.

Even if it’s just a little sunshine or a sunflower.

Quinoa-Breakfast_0043

Go ahead, you can do it.

Quinoa-Breakfast_0041

And then you can dig into this fabulous gluten-free breakfast.

I mean, come on now, it’s not every day you get to enjoy a tasty quinoa breakfast, is it? Sit down, take a few extra minutes to savor your first meal of the day before you rush out the door and then  go treat yourself to something special…even if it’s just a nice bottle of seltzer with a fresh lemon.

….how does that sound to you?

    I love this post. So very true. I’m constantly telling my three girls ages 10-16 to be grateful for the ways they are made unique & stop comparing! I hate to admit it, but I do it too. Thank you for the reminder to be thankful for each of our unique gifts/strengths. I’ve been wanting to purchase the cookbook against the grain as I have been on a journey of healing my body with food from an auto immune condition called Hashimotos. I ‘m teaching my girls to eat healthy so they are one step ahead of me in learning early in life how to care for their bodies. Thx for this giveaway!

    I know what you mean about comparing ourselves to others. Media encourages this unproductive behavior. We need to compare and compete with ourselves more than others. Strive to be our best, or to be better.

    I would enjoy winning the book because I need to get the gluten out. I am lactose intolerant and have been eating healthy since 1977 when healthy and vegetarian were considered weird and unAmerican. Working in a related grocery industry job, I see all kinds of synthetic foods that are not good for people at all. Healthy eating and lifestyle has come a long way in acceptance but there’s still plenty to go.

    I understand what you mean about “rejecting yourself,” and I think the timing of such a statement couldn’t be better. Whether it was inspired by the Miley Cyrus VMA performance or not, I feel it directly reflects the desperate cry for attention that so many of us make. And while Miley is lucky enough for her cries to be seen and heard by millions of people who want to help, many others’ cries tragically go unnoticed.

    Thank you for your thoughtful gesture and concern, and I agree, it’s important to love and respect yourself for who you are. And should we aspire towards something, let that something be pure and true.

    Let us all do something good for ourselves, our bodies and minds today. A delicious and healthy recipe such as your Almond Quinoa Breakfast sounds like a perfect way to get it started! Rick in protein, fiber and iron, quinoa is like a big hug! Below is a link to an article on its health benefits. Enjoy!

I have never tried flavored peanut butter, which seems crazy to me because I love peanut butter more than anything. Okay, almost anything.

    I loved this post! I too, feel like we often compare ourselves to others so much that we run the risk of not being able to see any of the positive things we have in our lives. When we were younger, my husband and I fell into the comparing trap to the point where we had overextended ourselves and we ended up losing our house, cars, and savings. It was a rough time for us, but it taught us so much. We learned that happiness is created within and it starts with a healthy mind and body. We also found how much more fun it is to give than receive and now we are sharing this gift with our daughters. I appreciate the recipes and wisdom that you share with your readers and look forward to sharing this blog entry with others.

    Wow! I never imagined having quinoa for breakfast! I usually eat it as a side for dinner. I love cooking with coconut oil and I use cranberries and almonds in my salads. I never imagined it would come together to make such a nice breakfast! Also, im here for the Peanut Butter & Co drawing, im pretty hopeful! just finished my 4th jar….

    Treating ourselves is such an important part of keeping a healthy balance in life. I wish more people would do so and not equate treating oneself with being selfish. Simply because that’s not true. Also, as you say, even the smallest things can be ways of treating ourselves and brightening our days immediately.

    This looks so easy and delicious. I would also add a bit of coriander and maybe a dash of ginger too. I bet it would be easy to swap out different nuts or berries according to whatever was in the pantry. Thanks so much!

    This looks amazing!! I love adding dried cranberries to my oats because it adds that perfect little bit of tart/sweet. I can’t wait to try this! Is there any good alternative to coconut oil? I see it in a lot of recipes but I never really know how to use it.

    This has to be the best breakfast ever. I did chop some raw nuts for a little more protein but the combination of ingredients are perfect. Even a little vanilla bean goes a long way in this! I am raving about this gem of a website to all. Thank you for the wonderful recipes! I’m not 100% gluten free but am easing into it. Lots of great products out there!! Homemade is always best though!

    I made this and it’s delicious! I am also NOT trying to win anything. My question concerns the serving size and the total amount this yealds. I know quinoa doubles but 1/2 cup only yealds 1 cup which is only 2 servings if 1/2 c is the true serving size. Curious if the servings are wrong. Thanks
