Bowl Full of Love: Coconut Quinoa Porridge with Cranberry, Pomegranate & Nuts

Usually on a weekend, when we aren’t held up with a billion things to do and places to go, I like to get creative in the kitchen and make something extra special for my husband for breakfast. I guess it’s my way of saying thank you for all that he does for me, after all food is love right?

This dish is filled with love and is the perfect winter breakfast, it’s warm, full of protein to keep you full and not to mention a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants to help fight off the winter blues.

So go on and share the love!

Love Wifey xx
