Woohoo, it's Friday and I'm back and I have energy! The past week kind of kicked my butt. Good thing my body bounces right back from these things and after taking yesterday afternoon and evening off for rest I woke up feeling awesome this morning. So, let's get back to this MoFo business. Today's post is a super simple, but awesome, Buckwheatie Breakfast Bowl.
This week was all about the quick and easy when it came to food. Having soaked & dehydrated buckwheat groats on hand makes for a fast and satisfying breakfast. I buy buckwheat groats in the bulk section at the supermarket, soak them overnight, drain and rinse really well, then dehydrate for about 24 hours. The come out light and crunchy and nutty tasting. Buckwheat groats are gluten free and are a decent source of protein (6 grams in 1 cup) and fiber (4 grams in 1 cup).
To make a breakfast bowl I sprinkle the dehydrated Buckwheaties with cinnamon, add fresh and dried fruit, and top with agave or maple syrup and almond milk. I'm not a huge fan of cold cereal for breakfast, but this really hits the spot. It makes a nice snack too.
I'm looking forward to catching up on some very-missed MoFo action this weekend. Have any fun plans for the weekend?
Oh yeah! I made a guest appearance at xgfx.org today that involves chocolate. Stop by and say hi :)
