I feel like I need to introduce myself…….
What a summer! Our trip to Italy was AMAZING!…..
We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and renewed our vows:
We walked around Rome, Florence, Orvieto and Venice in 95+ heat, visited family and took in the sights:
and I don’t even know where to begin about the food:
We even found the World’s Cutest Dog, who just happens to be in Orvieto:
So now we are back, the jet-lag is gone, the laundry is done, and I have no other reasons not to resume my blog 🙂
I wanted to break out of my “greek yogurt for breakfast” rut, so I thought I would try this recipe from the July/August 2012 Weight Watchers Magazine. It was very tasty and filled me up until lunch. Two very important requirements!
Breakfast Quinoa with Berries
1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (35 calorie/cup)
sprinkle of cinnamon
- 1 cup berries
Pour almond milk into a small saucepan and bring to a low boil. Add rinsed quinoa and sprinkle of cinnamon. Cover pan and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Top with berries. Makes 2 servings.
Recipe slightly adapted from Weight Watchers Magazine.
Using the Weight Watcher’s Recipe Builder, each serving has 5 PointsPlus.
