This week I have been focusing on adding more whole grains into my diet. Although porridge is usually not thought of as the most exciting breakfast, I promise you will change your mind!
Last night we had a vegetable stir fry with quinoa, I made extra of both. Today for breakfast I used the leftover quinoa with equal parts of almond milk to cooked quinoa, added dried fruits(goji berry and cranberry is what I used, but anything will work) , nuts and seeds (pecan, sunflower, and hemp hearts), cinnamon, and maple syrup. Then I brought it to a boil and then down to a simmer until the liquid was absorbed. Make sure to stir so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. I topped this porridge with hemp hearts, and raw apple. I used a lot of cinnamon, because I enjoy the taste and it has a warming effect on the body.
