Foodie Friday: Quinoa Oatmeal

Published courtesy of JulieCat in the Kitchen’s blog:


Well, I think oatmeal is fascinating!  It’s a blank canvas and that’s what make it so wonderful.  So, I decide to add a few little twists to this simple breakfast food, but as my usual goes…nothing fancy, just good.

Quinoa Oatmeal with Berries and Chia Seed

– 1 Cup Steel Cut Oats

– 1/2 Cup Quinoa: rinsed

– 3 tb. Chia Seed

– 3 1/2 to 4 Cups Water

– Any (or all?) of these toppings: Fresh Berries/ Sliced Almonds/ Pecans/ Walnuts/ Honey/ Brown Sugar/ Maple Syrup/ Pomegranate Seeds/ Apples/ Dried Cranberries/ Cinnamon/ Raisins/ Bananas/ Milk/ Almond Milk/ Coconut Milk/ Cream…SEE??!!  This is what makes oatmeal great.

– In a large saucepan, combine oats, quinoa and water.  Bring to a boil, then reduce and let simmer for about 15 minutes.

–  Remove from heat and add Chia Seeds.

– Add Toppings.




OC Half Marathon Commitment Countdown Update:

Hello everyone!

RatherBeRunnin’ here with a quick update for you.

Today is currently T-Minus 37 days.

I am writing you from the SF Airport, as I’m on my way to Arizona for Spring Training.

Up to this point, I have done fairly well.

Not perfect.

Noooooo definitely not perfect.

There have been a few mini Reeses cups, and a few too many beers after Modesto.

Overall though, I have been tracking all of my calories- which is a good thing.

But, I still have room to do better.

And I will!
