Vegan Quinoa Breakfast
Avocado Quinoa Bowl

I am on a one-woman crusade.  

What am I fighting against?  WIND CHILL.  I live in the Midwest where it can get quite cold.  All winter long the weather report not only tells you the air temperature, but then also lets you know how it feels.  I believe that this only makes you feel worse than you already do.  (I do understand that there is some legitimate value to prevent folks from freezing, but for the everyday person ...)

We have had a remarkably (somewhat scary) mild winter so far.  Until yesterday.

This morning the air temperature is 0.  Even without listening to the wind chill, 0 is darn cold.  

I cannot bring myself to drink a cold smoothie or eat cold cereal.

Luckily, I had some leftover quinoa.  Heating that up with some non-dairy cheese and topping with avocado gave me a nutrient-dense, warming breakfast.

What do you like to eat to warm up? 

Happy Cooking!
