There really isn’t anything like a warm bowl of hot cereal in the morning. Warm breakfasts help to kick start your digestion and brain function, especially when paired with a cup of hot lemon water or tea. This recipe is perfect for a quick and hearty warm breakfast you can take on the go, and you never want to skip the most important meal of the day!
Now let’s talk a little about quinoa. Quinoa is considered a superfood and packs a large punch in its health benefits. It is a grain by most (others consider it a seed), therefore it’s not a component of the Paleo diet. However it is gluten-free and should not be a carb you wave out of your diet easily. Quinoa is filled with protein, anti-inflammatory components, lots fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iron and so much more. Brown rice does put up a good fight against this amazing grain, but I personally like Quinoa’s crunchy texture and higher fiber benefits.

Costco sells a large 3 lb bag of Ancient Grain Mix that goes on sale for $9.99 from time to time, but Trader Joe’s Tri-Colored Quinoa will suffice if you’re cooking for one like me.
