Quinoa with Blueberries
Another Biggest Loser cookbook recipe.
I like trying out new healthy recipes for the family, but this one I made just for myself because I didn't think they would want this for breakfast.
I was right.
I liked the idea of trying out quinoa (pronounced "keen-wa") for breakfast.
It's usually served as a side dish grain, but thought it sounded like it might work for breakfast as an alternative to oatmeal.
I cooked the quinoa the night before and just heated a portion in the microwave for breakfast.
Start by thawing (if necessary) a cup of blueberries and smashing them up a little to release the juices.
Then adding them to the quinoa with a little honey and walnuts (the cookbook recommends almonds but I chose walnuts this time).
Then stir together and enjoy.
I wasn't a fan at first, but then I heated it up again in the microwave and it was good.
It'll be a nice protein-rich change of pace from oatmeal some mornings!
