Breakfast Barley

It's been cold enough lately, and having 160lb less on my frame means that I feel it a lot more, that I've really been craving warm breakfast. Eggs get old quickly, and honestly they've not tasted quite the same post-op. I've been looking around for protein-rich alternatives to my stand-by cold cereal and milk. This recipe covers all concerns - it's warm, it has comparable protein thanks to the heat tolerant protein powder, and a comforting feel on a cold morning. It's also a great way to use up left over grains.

  • 2/3 cup cooked, salted barley
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 scoop Any Whey protein powder 
  • 1 tbsp roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup 

Mix milk and protein powder together in small bowl until thoroughly combined. Add barley. Microwave for 2-3 minutes until warm (or warm on the stop top in small pan). Protein powder may rise to the top, just stir back into the barley mixture. Top with pumpkin seeds and maple syrup.
