Quinoa Breakfast


2 cups of water

 cup of quinoa (or 1/2 pre-cooked barley/millet)

1 cup of milk (almond or coconut)

1/8 tsp. of dry ginger

1/8 tsp. of cinnamon

1/8 tsp. of cardamom

pinch of salt

2 tbs. of almonds, crushed

1 tsp. of raw honey

1 tbs. of flax seeds

handful of dried fruit (cranberries) or blueberries or apple pieces


In a medium saucepan, heat up water and quinoa. Add salt and bring to a quick boil. Simmer for 10-15 min. Strain the quinoa. Make sure you remove as much of the liquid. Take the quinoa, maybe 1/2 a cup (depending on appetite) and place it in a bowl. Heat up the milk of choice and pour it into the bowl with quinoa. Add the spices, seeds, fruit and almonds. Lastly, drizzle the honey over. 

Note: It's important to gauge appetite. If you aren't really hungry for breakfast, don't eat. Have a grapefruit with honey and cup of tea instead.
