Quinoa ‘Oatmeal’

Another quinoa recipe? Yup, we’re pretty much in love with the stuff.
I’ve had yoga teacher training for the past couple of weekends; the days are long but awesome. Since it’s a long day, I’ve been turning to quinoa ‘oatmeal’ to hold me over until our ‘lunch’ break which is usually around 2:30 or 3pm.  We’re always striving to make healthy food fast and this is one of those ridiculously simple recipes; it’s also easy to bring with you on-the-go. Packed with protein and fiber, this is the type of breakfast that keeps you full without slowing you down. I typically keep a batch of cooked quinoa in the fridge, in which case this takes about 1 minute to throw together. Sometimes I’ll heat it other times I’ll have it at room temperature.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of cooked quinoa
raw walnuts, raisins, cinnamon, maple syrup (to taste)

You can add in any toppings that you would with oatmeal: berries, banana, apple, honey, etc.
Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir.

A green smoothie followed by this is a killer way to start your morning. 🙂

with love and quinoa,

Jackie
