Rich’s Quinoa Porridge

Looking for something new to do with your Quinoa? Try  Quinoa porridge for a great breakfast or mid morning meal.  It tastes awesome and is packed with fiber, protein and all the essential fat your body needs to help you, build muscle, maintain a healthy heart and fit lifestyle.

Quinoa Porridge

1 cup Quinoa

1 cup Whole rolled Oats

1 Tablespoon ground or whole flax seed

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 handful of crumbled Walnuts

2 diced Turkish Figs

Whole Milk

Raw Honey

Cook the Quinoa and oats together in two cups of water.  I use a rice cooker that has a setting for porridge, but you can cook it on the stove with a watchful eye.

One the porridge is done add all the other ingredients.  Add milk before the honey to cool the porridge. Otherwise the honey will heat and begin to breakdown losing most of its beneficial properties. Drizzle honey over the top and mix. Enjoy!

The nuts, flax and whole milk provide your body with essential fats that will keep you full for a longer period of time.

Quinoa is high in protein and other vitamins. Oats contain fiber which is essential for fat loss.

Cinnamon has various properties and some studies have shown cinnamon to reduce insulin spikes which is believed to be great for diabetics.
Figs contain high fiber and raw honey is nature’s golden food and a sugar source packed with vitamins. What would we do without bees?
