• 50g Organic Quinoa Flakes (available from most health stores)
  • 250ml filtered water
  • 250ml Unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ​Unsalted blanched flaked almonds (to garnish)
  • ​Low GI berries of your choice (I prefer blueberries, blackberries and/or raspberries)

Nature's Ingredients

If you haven't tried Quinoa, you've most probably heard about it one way or another. This little seed packs a real punch on the nutritional front and is one of the only non-meat sources of complete protein. As someone who follows a predominantly gluten-free diet and doesn't have a lot of grains, this is my go to breakfast when I want something warm and nourishing. The addition of cinnamon in this recipe helps to naturally balance blood sugar levels. Try to resist adding honey or syrup.
