Quinoa Breakfast

I like to have a breakfast that leans toward sweet but have given up eating those processed muffins, cereals, scones and donuts.Instead I have a great breakfast full of whole foods that is easy to prepare, low calorie and very satisfying.

The ingredients are simple:
Red quinoa (just cause I prefer red quinoa to white quinoa)
Plain yogurt (I make my own with organic skim milk)
Blueberries (I eat a lot of organic frozen blueberries and buy fresh or best yet pick my own!)
Ground flax seed (I buy it already ground)
Cinnamon (I prefer Ceylon ground cinnamon from www.renegadehealth.com)

I usually cook up a couple of cups of quinoa at a time and then have it to eat and enjoy quickly and easily. I also make 4 pints of yogurt at a timewith a 1/2 gallon of milk so it is always easy to add to breakfast. Frozen blueberries are the easiest to have around, I put a bag of them in the refrigerator so I have them all thawed and ready to eat.

1/3 cup red quinoa


1/3 cup plain skim yogurt


1/3 cup blueberries


1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed


1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Delish!!
