Great grains!

One part of being on the CORE® plan is that you should be trying new grains. They have a lot to choose from: quinoa, bulgur, barley, whole wheat couscous, polenta, wheat berries, millet, etc. I've always been a fan of couscous. I even opted for whole wheat over the plain variety....even before I chose the CORE plan. I used to eat it for lunch (as a part of a grain salad) and for dinner (as a side dish) but I've never had it for breakfast. So, in the spirit of trying new things, I've been eating it for breakfast with Bird's Eye Pepper Stirfry mix and two overeasy eggs. Ignore the egg on the left. I was in a hurry this morning and busted the yolk. Oops!

Any other creative ways of using grains for breakfast are greatly appreciated.
