This morning was a bit rushed, but my breakfast couldn’t be compromised.
I made a large pot of plain cooked millet Monday night, for easy leftovers. Millet is one of my very favorite grains. I love everything about it. However, I’ve never eaten it for breakfast. It always seems like more of a lunch/dinner grain to me.
But if you cook it plain [water only] you can easily whip it into breakfast.
The millet was heated up in a pot this morning, with almond milk. I also added frozen cherries + blueberries and cooked it until the liquid was absorbed. This created a very creamy + thick consistency.
Breakfast was ready in 8min flat and gobbled up in no time.
- ~1 – 1 1/4c precooked millet [cooked in water]
- 1/2 unsweetened almond milk
- 1t cinnamon
- 1t vanilla
- 1/3c frozen blueberries
- 1/3c frozen cherries
- In a pot over medium heat, add millet + milk together.
- Stir and bring to a simmer for 3-5min.
- Once it starts to thicken, add in frozen fruit, if using.
- Done when fruit is cooked through and desired consistency is met.
Love the crunchy buckwheat groats on top! The 2 nut butters were DEEvine. I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve eaten the maple cinnamon almond butter. I savored every little bite!
In other breakfast news….Chris’s breakfast was a toasted bagel with smoked paprika almond butter. I was shocked when he wanted this for breakfast, but he confirmed it was “delicious.” FYI – this nut butter is also delicious on pan sautéed broccoli. Yum.
Tons of progress made today! The kitchen is fully primed, as is the bathroom. It was a long + tiring day. Bathrooms are no fun to paint. You basically turn around on yourself a million times and get paint everywhere. It takes forever and tomorrow I get to put two coats of actual paint on! Yaaay [sarcasm] We’re slowly making progress on the packing. It’s hard to tell exactly how much more there is, and we don’t have too much to purge, since we’ve moved 3 times in the past 1.5yrs! At least we’re not doing a long-distance move this time!
Off to relax for a few + then get to bed!
