Miraculous Quinoa

Quinoa is a miracle seed that I recommend that everyone add to their diet. But how? There are many easy ways to start. Did you know that quinoa originated from South America? It contains all 9 amino acids and is a complete protein providing powerful energy. Just a quarter cup of quinoa contains other vital nutrients such as 20% of your recommended daily value of iron and magnesium (a mineral that can reduce migranes by relaxing blood vessels). Let's make a delicious quinoa-oatmeal breakfast dish.

Boil a cup full of quinoa for about 10 minutes until you see the seed open pop open and get fluffy.

Reduce the heat and add in some organic dried plums (also known as "prunes") for their powerful antioxidant benefits.

Now, add in the muli-grain instant organic oatmeal, walnuts and cinnamon.

The finished cooked combination of quinoa, oatmeal, prunes, walnuts and cinnamon.

Just add some organic blueberries, strawberries and plain yogurt. We've also added some ground flaxseed on top. Enjoy the nutritious benefits of this quinoa oatmeal dish every morning!
