Blueberry quinoa breakfast jars with soy-based yogurt are the perfect dairy-free alternative for a healthy grab-and-go breakfast!
We hear ‘New Year, New You’ pretty often this time of year. There are so many blasts about diets, cleanses, and other ‘quick fix’ things to get you feeling better about yourself after the holidays.
Instead of trying out a new plan that you might drop after the first couple weeks (or couple days), I think it’s much more worthwhile to take smaller steps and make some changes that you can actually do without going insane.
I mean, who wants to cut out ALL the carbs? Bread and rice taste so good.
Meal prepping is the biggest time saver for me and my family during the week. Even if we only prep a few foods or meals, it makes eating healthier throughout the week a breeze! Breakfast is one meal in particular that we need to have prepped. In order to fit in a workout, get ready, feed and clothe the child, and get out the door on time—we need to have a meal we can grab and eat at work most days.
Silk is one of my favorite brands, and I recently discovered they make some delicious products for grab-and-go meals and snacks. You can find Silk products in the Natural Foods Department at Kroger. They’re in an aisle separate from dairy products, where you might typically find them in other grocery stores. After shopping the other day, I found a diary-free yogurt—and it was amazing! I don’t personally need to go dairy-free, but this is such a great alternative for folks with allergies. Yogurt is one of the easiest foods to grab with minima to no prep for a healthy breakfast at work.
When I eat yogurt, I like to dress it up a bit. My latest obsession is adding quinoa! I need to have carbs in the morning, especially if I’m eating after a workout. You get an extra dose of protein with quinoa, too. Chia seeds are another favorite—plus any and all fruit!
This blueberry quinoa breakfast jar is super easy to prep. All you need to do is cook some quinoa on the weekend, than layer your yogurt, quinoa, fruit and any other toppings in a jar to toss in your work bag.
I promise you that quinoa in yogurt isn’t weird. Don’t give me any side-eye until you’ve tried it! 😉
