Top Tips for Breakfast Quinoa

  • Cook your quinoa ahead, and have it in the fridge ready to make breakfast at a moment's notice.
  • Change this up with whatever is in season. Peach & basil combo is awesome, as well as different berries (raspberries, blueberries rock!).
  • Chia seeds are fun in this, too!
