What a great challenge! For breakfast, I had quinoa with some jam mixed in. A weird but surprisingly great breakfast treat :)

KC said...

This is a fabulous idea! I love oatmeal, but it would be good for me to try some new things.

Ricki said...

Such a great idea! And I have to tell you, I've just started having something new for breakfast. . . with avocado! Will photograph it and post it and send along the info. Avocado really DOES go well for breakfast! :)

this looks really interesting! I eat quinoa and flax at breakfast all the time -- but not avo, walnuts or lentils -- interesting!
