Since I talked about my post-partum weight loss journey a little while back, I wanted to share one of my favorite breakfasts. I really find that what I eat for breakfast has a HUGE impact on my day, so I try to start off pretty healthy! I love having quinoa for breakfast – it’s super filling and really easy to add whatever toppings I want!
(Originally found here – I just adjusted the ratios)
2/3 cup skim milk
1/3 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
Dash of ground cinnamon, if desired
1/2 cup fresh berries
- Bring milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until three-quarters of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
- Stir in sugar and cinnamon (if using). Cook, covered, until almost all the milk has been absorbed, about 8 minutes. Stir in blueberries, and cook for 30 seconds. Serve with additional milk, sugar, cinnamon, and blueberries.
