Energy Bowl

This is one of my favorite dishes to make, since I am guy who has a sweet tooth, just the natural sugars in this dish help me ward off some that urge to eat something sweet and high in sugar.  The best part about this dish is that its pure energy.  No added sugar, plenty of good quality carbohydrates and the quinoa and/or buckwheat provide all the essential amino acids for protein synthesis to occur required for cellular repair.  Doesn’t take that long to make, and it makes enough for a few meals.

  • 1 Cup of Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup of quinoa
  • 1/4 cup of buckwheat
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 apple cubed
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup of apple juice sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp of Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 Cup Water

Combine the oats, quinoa, buckwheat, cranberries into saucepan with the almond milk and water.  Bring to a boil and lower temperature until thickening begins. Stir occasionally.

Add in the remainder of ingredients and let cook for 3-5 minutes.  Allow to cool and serve.

Many people will ask, “how many calories is it?” or “how much protein, sugar, fat, etc, is in it?”

My answer is “don’t know, don’t care.”  There is nothing in this that is bad for you, and when you eat foods that are whole, plant-based foods, you don’t have to count calories.  That’s my take on it.
