Quinoa for Breakfast
For those of you who haven’t tried or even heard of quinoa, please read on. I’ve actually been eating quinoa for a few years but it wasn’t till recently that I realized how versatile this little grain can be. Please check out www.whfoods.com for more information on quinoa and it’s health benefits.
One thing I love to eat for breakfast is cold cereal. After I started my blood type diet, I switched to a wheat and gluten free cereal which I enjoyed very much. But, then my nutritionist recommended that I try eating quinoa instead. She told me all the health benefits of quinoa and why it was much more beneficial to my blood type than cereal. But, then I thought, how is this going to be as good as the cereal that I love to eat? My nutritionist gave me the following simple recipe and I’ve been hooked ever since:
Ingredients: 3/4 cup cooked quinoa (follow package instructions), dry oats, chopped walnuts or sunflower seeds, raisins (or other dried fruit), rice or almond milk
Directions: Top quinoa with nuts and fruit and fill bowl with milk. Can be served cold or heated in the microwave for a warm, filling breakfast.
