Quinoa Baked French Toast Breakfast Recipe

Quinoa Baked French Toast Breakfast Recipe

Quinoa is a staple in many diets today whether you are vegan / vegetarian or a carnivore.  Since it is not a grain it fits into the No Sugar, No Grain lifestyle but unfortunately it is not Paleo based on what I read.  That being said you can make your own choices on what you want to put into your body and I for one will choose to consume quinoa. 

I was inspired to get quinoa back into my diet after reading this article from Food Republic that showed 10 different things you didn't know about quinoa.  With this article in mind I made extra quinoa for this baked french toast recipe.  As it turned out I am beyond happy that I did so and now have a base for making this meal the night before and then re-heating for post workout recovery meals.  This is also a beginner's recipe so feel free to add fruit and honey to it.  Essentially treat this as any french toast breakfast you would make. Here is the recipe for the Quinoa Baked French Toast that I so thoroughly enjoyed on Tuesday morning.  Please note that this recipe is for twice as much quinoa as you are going to use for the breakfast recipe, but it is difficult to get quinoa correct with only 1/4c dry.  Make 1/2c and then use 1/2 for dinner like in this photo and then use the remaining for the french toast.

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
