Veggie Egg & Red Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

 Healthy foods and toddlers oppose each other like kittens and water. It is nearly impossible to get your little ones to eat anything that’s green, let alone good for them. I am the Queen of sneaky vegetables so I am always looking for new ways to turn a plain meal into a veggie stuffed super meal. As someone who is not a huge fan of quinoa (don’t stone me), I still like to eat it because of all of the various health benefits associated with it. So instead of having it just as is, I normally stuff it in burgers. The other morning though, I was feeling creative and made an entirely new meal out of it. My list of veggies is just a suggestion. You can play around with this, mix and match different food items to make your own superbowl. The cool thing about it is, your babes won’t know that what they are eating is actually good for them! I told my Little that they were grape seeds. Hey, sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get them to eat those yummy colorful veggies and health foods! So go ahead and give this a try. I would love to hear your family’s experience with it and if you tried or added something different. Enjoy! Veggie Egg & Red Quinoa Breakfast BowlCook Time: 20 minPrep Time: 15 minTotal: 35 min.Serves 4Ingredients:– half cup cooked quinoa- 5 eggs- handful spinach- 1/2 diced red pepper- 1/2 diced green pepper – 1 diced tomato- 1 diced zucchini- 1/2 diced purple onion- 1 cup milk- dash sea salt & pepper (add more seasoning if you prefer)- Avocado, pitted and sliced- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil- cheese (optional)To cook Quinoa: To cook your quinoa, add 1 cup of milk to pot and bring to a low boil. Add in 1/2 cup of quinoa and bring to a low simmer. Cover pot with a lid, leaving part of the pot uncovered for ventilation. Cook until a little over half of the milk is absorbed- about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. Once your quinoa is done, just sit to the side. Chop your veggies and add to a medium heat skillet based with olive oil. Cook your veggies until soft- about 5 minutes.
