These quick and easy Power Breakfast Bites will leave you well satisfied until lunch. Maybe, even through lunch. Power Bites are packed with iron fortifying spinach, quinoa, and eggs. Since protein is a must to sustain energy and build muscle, these ingredients meet that criteria too!
Abraham’s servant most likely ate some whole grain breakfast with plenty of protein to sustain him on his journey seeking a wife for Isaac. History records ancient cultivation of wheat and barley (Wow! In their purest non-GMO form).
Moreover, the servant refused to eat the meal prepared before him upon arrival! Talk about stamina and focused on the task at hand. Genesis chapter 24 is a lovely account of o loyalty, humility, thankfulness, answered prayer, and directness.
Then he prayed, “Lord, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham. Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder. (Genesis 24:12, 15a)
May you and I be filled today with the stamina for the task at hand, and align ourselves with the word of God. As we set out to do His will, may He answer our prayers before we even finish them! Furthermore, may He instill in us the same characteristics necessary to bless others and go the extra mile!
I hope you enjoy these gluten free, whole grain, protein packed breakfast bites!
Power Breakfast Bites
2 Cups Fresh Baby Spinach
3/4 Cup Cooked Quinoa
1/4 Cup Onion
1 Clove Garlic
1/2 Cup Shredded Carrots
1/4 Cup Vegetable Broth
2 Tablespoons milk (your preference, skim, almond, rice)
1 Tablespoon spinach artichoke dip (or 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese)
Sauté the onions, garlic, and carrots in the vegetable broth. When they are tender add the spinach, cover and let wilt about 30 seconds. Add the quinoa and your choice of cheese spread (can be the dip above or a chive/cream cheese blend or just plain parmesan). Place in very lightly olive oiled muffin tins. In a food processor or blender blend the eggs and milk.
These can be prepared ahead of time using left over items from dinner the night before. Or if your spinach is almost dated and you need to use it up. No big production, just pull out your muffin pan and lightly oil it with olive oil as you are preparing dinner. Then, as you sauté your dinner vegetables add a few extra for these breakfast bites.
