Protein Packed Quinoa Porridge
Mornings are my time to train. It sets me up for the day.
To be able to get the best results from training, quality fuel is queen.
Cold morning Training and Hot Post Workout Breakfast, is a match made in heaven!
I make this in bulk, so I can re-heat it quickly for the perfect post workout breaky!
Ingredients: (2 servings)
1/2 cup Quinoa (uncooked & rinsed)
1 1/2 cups Water
1/2 cup Almond Milk (or milk of choice)
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup All Natural Peanut Butter
1 cup Strawberries (sliced) or Blueberries (frozen and thawed ok)
2 tbsps Protein Powder (Optional)
Combine protein powder with almond milk and mix well.
Add uncooked quinoa to a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid. Whisk in water, almond milk protein mixture, cinnamon and salt.
Bring to a gentle boil then reduce to medium-low and cover with lid. Let simmer, stirring frequently to prevent quinoa from sticking to the bottom of the pot, for 25 minutes or until quinoa is tender.
Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until well mixed. Divide into bowls and then top with strawberries.
Note: I make a double batch of this the night before and heat in the morning for speedy nutrition.
