Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and with the help of Bonne Maman, it’s time to #SayItWithHomemade. Make Mom breakfast in bed and serve her this sweet and savory bowl of Breakfast Quinoa with Strawberry Preserves.
Did you know that Bonne Maman actually means grandmother or granny in French? How appropriate for Mother’s Day! There’s no sweeter way to show how much you care than by creating something from scratch and pouring your heart right into the bowl. You can do just that with this Breakfast Quinoa with Strawberry Preserves. It’s super simple to make, with just a few ingredients — just like Bonne Maman’s motto of simple ingredients, homemade taste.
Bonne Maman’s preserves are produced in France with the finest ingredients. They are made from whole fruit, and are Non-GMO Project Verified. There’s no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial coloring and no preservatives added. Everything you’ll find in their preserves could easily be found right in your own kitchen cabinets. Bonne Maman gets its appeal because of its dedication to authenticity — their products are reminiscent of those time-honored, homemade recipes that you probably remember Mom or Grandmom making when you were growing up.
But let’s get back to breakfast in bed. First of all, no one wants to eat something messy in bed. That’s why bringing Mom a bowl is ideal. There’s no mess with this Breakfast Quinoa with Strawberry Preserves! We’ve pumped up the protein in this breakfast with some added hemp and chia seeds because even though Mom is already a super hero, a little extra boost of energy to get through the day would help. Add a cup of OJ, tea or coffee, and Mom is all set for a peaceful morning. Just make sure not to nag her for the rest of the day!
