It’s cooling down in Nashville and my body couldn’t want it more. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years of listening to my body and what it needs, it’s the change of seasons. From the temperature of food, the produce used, the textures of food, to the spices used, all of these components change with the seasons and I think it’s important we listen in and change with it. There’s something grounding to eating warm, cooked food during the fall and winter so get ready for a full season embracing recipes that will warm you up and give you some foundation this season! This recipe is for a dry cereal mix, it’s meant to be stored in a glass container or jar so you can have a quick and nourishing breakfast in the morning just by adding hot water or cooking it with almond milk. The combination of quinoa flakes, hemp seeds, chia seeds, oats is amazing.
Since it’s getting a touch cooler in Nashville, I’ve been enjoying this for a hearty and filling breakfast. The great thing about this recipe is you can take it with you to work in an airtight container and warm up when you get there or have it for a snack when your body is craving something more substantial.

The cereal itself has healthy fats from the seeds, but I recommend adding toppings that contain healthy fat as well to keep your hunger at bay, keep you satisfied and feeling good all morning. I like using coconut butter (it just so happens that I have some pink berry coconut butter on hand!), almond/cashew/peanut butter, ghee, coconut oil, coconut yogurt or kefir (hello probiotics), etc. Use whatever you enjoy!
Since there is quinoa which is a gluten-free seed technically, but used as a grain, it’s rich in protein. Couple that with the seeds and you’re in good hands with protein for the morning.
We all know the importance of both types of fiber and this warm cereal contains a good amount of fiber to keep you full, keep your energy and blood sugars balanced in the morning and throughout the day.
Add in a scoop of plant-based protein powder for a boost of protein (even though this already contains a fair amount, you can give it a boost, I’d go with a vanilla based or neutral). If you go this route, add extra almond milk or water to thin it out and get your desired texture.
