Quinoa Porridge

Quinoa Porridge

This cereal is high in ‘easy to digest’ protein and packed with EFAs and anti-oxidants.  What better way to start your day!

Ingredients:

  • 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!

Directions:

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.

Serves 1

Health Benefits:

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.
