- ½ Cup of cooked Quinoa (in water)
- 2 oz of Unsweetened Almond Breeze
- Dash of Cinnamon
- 1/3 cup fresh berries
Make your Quinoa according to package and place in the fridge overnight for use in the morning. Take your Quinoa and place it into a microwave safe bowl and add your almond breeze, and cinnamon. Place in the microwave for about 1 ½ minutes. Take out stir and add your berries. Eat and enjoy.
This is a great meal if you want something warm but can’t do gluten, like me. I decided to try this dish because I just love quinoa, you can make up a batch and leave it in the refrigerator for a few days and always have it ready to go. What I did with this dish was substitute what I use to use (oatmeal) for a better grain that has more protein and helps we through my long morning of training without a drop in energy. Plus you get calcium from the Almond milk which is dairy free, and antioxidants form all the great berries. So I would definitely try this great dish, if you don’t want it for breakfast it makes an awesome snack as well.
Time: 25 minutes (that is to cook quinoa) if cooked already 10 minutes
