Whole Grain Breakfasts - Sweet and Savory

Following are two different takes on hot cereal breakfasts.  The first is a sweet Quinoa morning salad and the other gives traditional oatmeal a savory, salty twist.  Both offer protein, whole grain carbohydrates, and either fruit or vegetables.

Sweet Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
1 cup cooked quinoa (hot or cold)
1 t olive oil
1 t pure maple syrup
2 T sliced almonds
1/2 t black pepper
Cinnamon to taste

Toss all ingredients together.

Savory Oatmeal
1 c cooked oatmeal (hot)
Sun dried tomatoes
Chopped red bell pepper
Arugula or spinach
Olive oil
Italian seasonings
Sea salt
1 egg
1 T sliced green onion

While oatmeal is cooking, saute veggies in olive oil.  Scramble an egg into the soft, sauted veggies.  Gently fold veggie/egg mixture into cooked oatmeal and top with a sprinkling of salt, Italian seasonings, and sliced green onions.
