Hello, Hello, Hello.
Sorry that it has been a while since I have written anything. My life has been a little busier than I have wanted it to be. About a month ago, I took the train up to Seattle to visit Bastry University and check out their masters program in nutrition. Ever since then I have been trying to figure out what I need to do to get accepted there. Bastyr is a very small private university. They focus on the mind, body, spirit and whole foods. There is just about 1,200 students in the whole school. Their nutrition program sounds awesome and part of their curriculum includes cooking in their amazing kitchen.
Also, about a month ago I also signed up for the San Francisco marathon! I figured, why not? It was about 8 months away and I had never been to San Francisco. If I didn't sign up for it I would never do it. I needed something to look forward to, I needed something that I could work on and accomplish that didn't take 4 years. So far training is going well and I am ahead of my own schedule. Today I ran 9 miles. I feel proud of myself.
Okay, but for now, this blog is really about food, so lets get to it!
A few weeks ago I saw a recipe on Choosing Raw for a hot breakfast cereal made of quinoa. She basically just cooked the quinoa and then put it in a food processor to liquify it. For a little bit now, I have been making quinoa for breakfast, but leaving it intact. Yesterday I figured I would try something different. I had some extra, plain, cooked quinoa in my fridge. I added hemp milk, cinnamon, bananas and frozen blueberries to the quinoa and heated it up on the stove, hence the name of the blog. Bananas, Blueberries and Quinoa.
After it was heated through I used my lovely immersion blender and blended until everything was smooth and creamy.
I then added some maple syrup to sweeten and topped with a mix of nuts (almond, cashew, hazelnut, walnut and pecans).
Quick, easy, delicious and very nutritious. Try using other frozen fruits!
