Purely Fast: A GF Breakfast

For the past two weeks, I have not had time to make oatmeal in the morning. I know! It’s a real travesty.

Between cramming in school work and trying not to give up my morning gym sessions, I have been FFWD’ing through the house in the a.m. Luckily, when I was at Whole Foods a week ago blowing through my retirement money, I found a new to me cereal that makes yogurt happy!

What caught my eye with Purely Elizabeth was underneath the tagline: quinoa – amaranth – chia <<<LOVE those guys!

The ingredients list is top notch:

And with 130 calories in 1/3 cup, I don’t feel bad about having 3 tbsp. in a morning yogurt cup! Plus it has 3g of Protein and 2g of fiber.

It’s nice and crunchy with a hint of sweetness and a touch of cinnamon. And I love the texture the puffed amaranth adds!

I feel like this is something I might could even make again at home…you know, because I have all this free time! But I will have to try because this little box of cereal was definitely a splurge, but at only 3 tbsp. a serving, I’m going to make it last!

Happy Monday!

It’s a short week for me because this weekend MOH and Amy are coming in to town to celebrate another best girl’s wedding and bachelorette!! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!

Max is pretty excited too!
