PB & J Quinoa and Look at my garden grow

Pre-Run Breakfast
Peanut Butter and Jam Breakfast Quinoa

Peanut Butter and Jam Breakfast Quinoa
Great alternative to Oatmeal
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
2 Teaspoons PB2
1 Teaspoon Ground Flax/Chia Mix
1 Teaspoon Hemp Hearts
Combine together in pot on medium high heat
1/3 Cup COOKED quinoa
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
A couple drops liquid Stevia
Cook until desired consistence, stirring a lot
Top with 1 Tablespoon low sugar jam of choice (I used a organic black current jam)

SOOO Good! And So filling! I didn't even eat it all!
The weather here in the GTA has been yucky at best....Cold and Rainy
It is a bit breezy this morning but overall not too bad......I am going to go for a 5k run......I would like to do more but I lost so much cardio this winter I am increasing slowly. My longest run this year so far is only 8km.....sad
It is going to take a lot of hard work to get back.
I just couldn't stomach the treadmill much this winter....So instead I focused on weight training 3-5 times a week. So hence why my body feels like it wants to run faster and longer, just cardio wise I am not there yet...... sigh

On a happier note!!!!!!
Look at my pretty seedlings!!!! Growing strong! (This is just some of them)
Planting them the last weekend of June!
I love Summer so so much! Happy it is almost here!

The garden will include
Sweet Peppers
Green Onions
Butternut Squash
Snow Peas
Sweet Corn
Heirloom Tomatoes
Candy Cane Beets
Purple Haze Carrots
Cant wait for fresh organic produce!
