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.
