Cinnamon Vanilla Breakfast Quinoa - A High Protein Start to Your Day
Breakfast is BY FAR my favorite meal of the day. I love coming up with new ideas and recipes for this day part. I am a huge fan of quinoa, but up until now, I was mostly eating it at lunch or dinner in savory dishes. If you enjoy oatmeal, you will LOVE quinoa used as the main ingredient in this subtly sweetened breakfast bowl.
