Fruit & Nut Cereal {Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo}

cereal

If you are like me, you are not a huge fan of cereal. First of all, being gluten free, I cannot eat a lot of different kinds. Shout out to Chex here – for creating so many flavors of cereal for wheat allergy people like me.

Anyway, you will absolutely love this fruit and nut cereal. Not only is it gluten free, it can be paleo and dairy free by using almond milk or coconut milk. Yum.

You will need: 1 banana (chopped), 12 grapes (halved), 1 handful of almonds, 1 handful of walnuts and 1 cup – or ½ cup of coconut milk.

Also – feel free to try out different fruits like: blueberries, strawberries, pineapple. There are endless combination that could be yummy. I just used the fruits that were in my fridge.

This is absolutely an amazing bowl of goodness to start your day off with. It’s crunchy, sweet, creamy and satisfying. Not to mention, it does not have all the gross preservatives, sugar and food coloring.

Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Healthy Avocado Toast

ImageI love Saturday mornings. First of all – no work (sometimes) and a quiet morning just drinking coffee and watching TV {OK, I will try to throw a workout in there!}

There is nothing better than not having an agenda, lounging in yoga clothes, watching Food Network and making a quick, yummy breakfast.

My sister – the awesome blogger for The Veggie Girl – introduced me to this quick, simple breakfast that has become one of my favorites.

It basically has one ingredient and takes no time at all to make in the morning. It’s healthy and fills you up for hours!

All you need is a toaster, one small avocado, gluten free bread, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Yep, that’s all. And, of course, if you are not gluten free – you can substitute the gluten free bread for some healthy maybe Ezekiel 4:9 bread.

First of all, cut the avocado and hollow out the insides. Place the insides of the avocado in a bowl and mash it up with a fork. I don’t have a toaster, but the broil option on my stove is a lifesaver. I just set two pieces of bread in the oven and heat them for about 3 minutes.

Then spread the avocado mixture on your toast, sprinkle it with a salt and pepper and squirt a little lemon juice over the toast. Now, you have a filling, healthy Saturday morning breakfast! Complete with a warm cup of coffee.

PS: I will post later this afternoon on how to make a $1 pocket square. Stay tuned!
