Looking for something warm and a little sweet in the morning yet still full of nutrients and energy? Try my quick and easy quinoa and spiced apple porridge. The almond milk and quinoa give you a nice protein punch and the nuts and seeds provide a great source of healthy fats. The cinnamon gives it a nice warming feel and kick and will help to reduce cravings throughout the day.
1 cup almond milk
1 cup water 1/2 cup quinoa 2 apples, chopped or grated with skin ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon coconut sugar 1 tablespoon ground linseed (flaxseed) or LSA (linseed, sunflower seed, almonds)
Soak quinoa for 10 minutes and then thoroughly rinse quinoa under cold running water.
Combine with the water in a pot and bring to the boil.
Reduce the heat – cover and cook for 10 minutes until soft.
Add milk, apple, cinnamon, seeds and vanilla.
Cook for 5 minutes until creamy – add more milk if needed for a creamier texture.
Spoon into serving bowls and enjoy.
