It’s that time of year when everywhere you look people are jumping on some kind of health and fitness band wagon. Resolutions are running a little rampant and each person is determined to succeed. We’ve all been there, trying to slug it out alone to achieve our health goals… But where’s the joy in that?!
Setting goals and reaching them is so much more fun and achievable when you’re surround by inspiring and like-minded women who are there supporting you every step of the way. That’s why we are kicking off our first TOTALLY BUF EDUCATION PROGRAM intake for 2019 starting 11th February, and we couldn’t be more excited!
It’s a seriously fun and motivating way to start your year, whether you are wanting a full lifestyle overhaul complete with a brand new mindset or are just trying to get back on track with your healthy habits. Our 6-week program is designed to help you find your groove, create a balanced but flexible life you love, and embrace the wonderful body you’ve been gifted with. It’s about approaching health the way you’d want a daughter or friend to approach it, from a place of excitement, balance, love, curiosity and understanding.
To build the anticipation for our TOTALLY BUF kickoff, we’re giving you a few little sneak peeks of what you can expect. A couple of weeks ago I gave a little insight into three HEALTH HABITS that we explore in TOTALLY BUF…. all of which have been a game changer for me personally! Today we’re sharing one of our favourite protein breakfast meals from the first week of the program. Mmmmmmmm yum!
What you’ll need
- 3⁄4 Cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
- 500ml water
- 1⁄2 – 1 Cup coconut milk
- 1-2 t Stevia or honey
- 1⁄4 t Ground cinnamon (plus more for serving)
- 2 T Walnuts (or nuts of choice)
- 1 Cup fresh blueberries (to serve)
- 1 T Raisins or chopped dried figs
- 2 T Coconut or natural yoghurt (to serve)
Now do this
- Rinse the quinoa really well and if you can, soak it overnight in the water (add a spoon of yoghurt or pinch of salt too if you like).
- In the morning, put the quinoa in a pot on the stove and add a little more water if needed. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, covered, for 10 minutes.
- Stir in some milk and the dried fruit and nuts. Cook, covered, for another 10 minutes, then stir in the stevia or honey, cinnamon and the remaining milk.
- Serve with blueberries on top and a dollop of coconut or natural yoghurt.
