Hot Quinoa Cereal

by | Updated: December 3rd, 2016

The wind is howling outside and the temps are dropping. That’s all the reason I need to stay inside and in some fluffy flannel pajamas. But when it comes to warming my belly, there’s nothing better than a big bowl of hot cereal. Usually, I’d reach for a canister of whole grain rolled oats”¦but oatmeal is so last year. It’s time to try something new: quinoa flakes. Because quinoa is just as filling and versatile as your old fashioned grains, you won’t feel like you’re jumping too far “oat” of your comfort zone.
