Breakfast Quinoa


1/4 cup uncooked Quinoa
1/3 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla (or almond) extract

Cook Quinoa with 1/2 cup water (bring to a boil, turn heat to low & simmer, covered until liquid is absorbed). Add all other ingredients, stir & enjoy! I made this the night before for a quick meal to reheat in the morning :)

Only 234 calories as prepared above. Add 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts for an extra protein/omega-3 boost and you're still under 500 calories at just 434. Filling, protein rich & sweet!
