Quinoa for Breakfast

23 Feb

This recipe will be especially useful to those of you on a plant based diet – I’m talking about my fellow vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians, and FLEXatarians out there, lol. I’m not really a “bean +  nut” eater so I have to get creative when it’s time to incorporate high protein foods into my diet. Below find a single serving recipe for this protein packed “oatmeal” alternative. If you’re making this for more than one person don’t forget to double it, etc. Consider making enough for the week and just warming it up in the morning for a quick and healthy start to your day!
