I have really been enjoying eating quinoa lately because there are so many different ways to prepare it. It is high in protein and fiber so it keeps me full for a while. Since I switched to the early shift (5am to 1pm) I do not have time to mess with food in the morning so I had to make sure everything was made on Sunday and put into containers for the week. I was thinking I would just bring oatmeal but then I decided to try this instead. It is like oatmeal, but made with quinoa. I like to heat the quinoa and mix it with my Greek yogurt.
