Quinoa with Blueberries

Biggest Loser
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!
