Cold Fall mornings call for steaming bowls of breakfast goodness, don’t you think?  I shared this recipe for a superfood breakfast bowl yesterday on Camille Styles and wrote about just a FEW of the health benefits packed into this bowl.  Head over here to read more!  And I’ll be back later today with some links for your weekend.  xx- Sarah  {Recipe after the jump}

    I bet the quinoa tastes great cooked in coconut milk. The sweetness of the coconut milk would be a nice balance to the slightly bitter quinoa. I haven't had goji berries in a while, but I love the colour that they add to those photos!

    Just made this! Amazing! I added a little bit of canned pumpkin and pumpkin spice instead of the banana. Delicious!

    this is great – I recently switched from steel but oats in the AM to quinoa – I love it and top it with banana and some other stuff like raisins and dried cranberries. Super delicious and healthy.
