This cereal is high in ‘easy to digest’ protein and packed with EFAs and anti-oxidants. What better way to start your day!
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup quinoa grain
- pinch sea salt
- 1 tbsp brain food mix*
- 8 or 9 raw almonds chopped (or any raw nuts you have on hand)
- handful of blueberries
- splash of almond milk (unsweetened or if you like it sweeter use rice milk instead)
*Brain Food Mix (in coffee blender mix 3 parts flax seed, 1 part seasame seeds, 1 part sunflower seeds, 1 part pumpkin seeds and store in dark container in fridge) You can add this to anything, like muffins, cereals, smoothies and salads. I even hide this in my kids pizza’s!
Boil the water and then add the quinoa. Season with salt. Bring water back to a boil and simmer on low heat for approximately 7 minutes. Switch off, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes. Add almond milk to the consistency you like. Add brain food mix, almonds and blueberries.
Qunioa is easy to break down in the body and is a healthier protein than meat. It looks like a grain (is a fruit) and is a complete protein on its own. The Brain Food Mix is a sure way to get your Essential Fatty Acids for the day. EFAs are important for good health.
