This is an amazing breakfast! It holds you. Loaded with protien, complex carbos and fiber and omega 3's. No refined sugar, or carbs and very hearty.
1/2 cup organic rolled oats
1/2 cup organic quinoa
2 cups water
2 cups fresh blueberries (you can use any fresh fruit here).
2 Tbs. ground flax seeds
Sprinkle of cinnamon on each serving
Bring the water to a boil in a 2 quart pot.
Rinse the quinoa in a strainer. When the water comes to a boil add the oats and the quinoa to the pot.
Lower the heat to simmer and cover. Cook for 10 minutes until all of the water is nearly absorbed. Let the grains steap in the pot for another 10 minutes.
Place the berries in the bottom of 4 bowls. Divide the cereal into 4 portions over the berries. Top with the ground flax seeds and finish with the cinnamon.
Tip: Dedicate a coffee grinder to flax seeds and grind a container full and keep in an airtight container in the freezer and use on your whole grains, yogurt, soups and smoothies.
