After years and years of eating oatmeal this is a nice change. Oatmeal is amazing for you, but quinoa is a bit better. It is a balanced grain that contains a good amount of protein. If you don't know all the benefits take a look here for some no nonsense quinoa facts.
So I tried a recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow's new cook book and it turned out amazing. I will post that recipe tomorrow, but in the meantime you can cook it as you usually did. (Basically same way you cook rice.) I cook extra to last a few mornings. You can totally put any toppings on this and make it your own!
