Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Here it is, guys! My very first recipe video and upload! Thanks for coming by and checking it out.

Now I’m no professional chef, but I can tell you that I love to eat. I love food and wish I had more opportunities to cook up delicious meals, but I am a single mom, I have a full time job, a side business I run and a son involved in all kinds of sports and activities. I am already wearing myself thin on time so finding time to cook a meal are slim to none.

You get the point. I’m busy and I’m sure you are too. This means I gotta be all about simple and fast when it comes to my meals so when it came time to choose a recipe to share with the world, I had to stick with the theme. Mamas, I got you. I’m not trying to make your life anymore complicated or stressful then it already is. Just trying to add a little nutrition and some healthy, tasty ideas that can easily be added to your menu list.

My hope is to cook a meal once a week and share the recipe here on my blog with you. And of course, I’m going to continue to keep with the theme of simple, fast and healthy. My first meal is a Quinoa Breakfast Bowl and this damn thing was so easy to make, my first attempt was a success! It turned out delicious. I ‘m giving myself a rating of 8.5 since I forgot to include fresh basil. Try it out and let me know what you think!
