Coconut Lime Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Some hippie shiz right here

I’m not going to lie to you, this coconut lime quinoa breakfast bowl recipe is some straight up hippie shit.

It’s crunchy, it’s grainy, it’s nutty.

Let’s petition and see if Berkeley wants this dish as their mascot. Damn Berkeley hippies.

Despite the “granola” feel of this recipe, it’s undeniably tasty.

I recommend making this recipe in your (outside) kitchen barefoot, with no bra, sarong tied around your waist and a handkerchief looking top. Your hair should be a little messy with a slight hint of patchouli and preferably in a braid.¬†Also, your legs should be hairy, so you should probably get a jump start on this part now (It’ll just taste better if you follow these steps. I have no proof of this, but I’m pretty sure I’m right).

    Thanks for the great breakfast idea. I did not see any flax meal in the recipe. Where and when you you add it?

      HA! I tricked ya’ – lol. Thank you for commenting on this. I see now that I accidentally put the intro for another recipe on this recipe. This intro was meant for my Superfoods Raw Muesli which I haven’t posted yet.
      I’m going to take out the flax bit from the intro. In the meantime, just make the recipe according to recipe and you’ll be good!
