Breakfast

Blueberry ‘Porridge’

I’ve created another breakfast recipe using wonderful quinoa flakes as a substitute to the grains of regular oatmeal. Quinoa porridge is the perfect way to start the day with a mixture of protein, healthy fats and carbs.

3 tbsp quinoa flakes
300ml unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp soy yoghurt
Cup of blueberries
Toppings: strawberry, banana, chia seeds, blueberries and cacao nibs.

Directions:
Cook quinoa flakes in almond milk over a low heat and wait until it starts to bubble. Add blueberries and simmer until the porridge thickens the add the yoghurt.

Serve in a large bowl and top with your favourite toppings! Enjoy.

Blueberry benefits
Blueberries not only look and taste delicious, but they are a total all round superfood. Known as one of the world healthier foods, blueberries have an incredibly high antioxidant level which is great for strengthening the body and disease prevention. Blueberries can improve blood fat balances, including a reduction in cholesterol and a lowering of triglycerides. Eat your berries!
