Ginger Cream Freekeh Breakfast Bowl ~ Serves 2
Do ahead: Rinse the grains a couple of times and add to a sauce pan along with the water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until the water has been absorbed, about 40 min (the perfect time to put the kids to bed or to read a few pages of your favorite book). Store in a covered container in the fridge (you could even make enough for the whole week so you only have to do this step once).
In the morning: Pour the milk or cream into a small saucepan and add the ginger. Heat over a medium low flame stirring constantly for 3 minutes or until the ginger flavor comes out. Whisk in honey and add the grains. Cook for 2 minutes longer or until the grains are heated through. Divide between two bowls and add your fruit and nuts.
Simple Coconut Chia Breakfast Pudding ~ Serves 2
Do ahead: In a jar (divide the ingredients between two jars for personal servings) add the coconut milk, vanilla and chia. If you prefer a little sweetness in the pudding itself, add 1-2 tablespoons of honey. Once the lid is secured shake to combine. Place in the fridge overnight (or at least 2-3 hours).
In the morning, separate into two bowls (or just open the two jars if you made it that way) and add the fruit and coconut flakes.

This week's nature walk comes to us from Quandary Peak right here in Colorado. There Colleen and her friends wandered through the dynamic landscape as they made their way to the craggy peak in the distance. Thank you Colleen for sharing this fun adventure!
