Vegan Breakfast Berry Quinoa

Protein packed quinoa paired with a cinnamon almond milk mixture, a drizzle of honey, and a few fresh berries complete the morning.

Okay, now I have a confession. I skip breakfast a lot. I used to, actually. But after I had this I new I had a new purpose in life: to eat breakfast every day.

Just kidding. Or maybe I’m not.

One of my favorite things about this is that there is no added sugar (if you use sugar-free almond milk), it’s filled with protein, and the berries are a great source of fiber. Berries are lower in sugar then normal fruit, so I love topping almost anything with them, or instead of reaching for a candy bar I reach for a handful of berries.

The berries and honey give a sweet touch to the bland quinoa (I’m sorry quinoa! No hurt feelings, okay?), and the cinnamon almond mixture gives a warming component.

Honestly, I can’t eat quinoa alone. It’s flavorless, so that’s why I always use it in things such as my Quinoa Fruit Salad. Enjoy!
