Sometimes it pays to actually do what all those bloggers you follow tell you: boil up a pot of millet or quinoa and keep it in the fridge.

In the morning when the thought of chopping and slicing and frying seems just too much I heat up the quinoa or millet with rice or almond milk, add a couple of power foods and life just gets good. Especially because, though the sun is shining and birds are singing and Spring is springing. it's still cold enough to enjoy a warm breakfast. Spring does bring the advantage of fresh strawberries: the chill of the berries on the warm milk and 'porridge' adds texture...
