Looking for an alternative to a basic bowl of oatmeal this season? Try Quiona. Pronounced keen’wa, this South American grain is a complete protein. It’s easy to digest, gluten-free, and a low-fat source of protein.

Boil 2 parts water, and add 1 part quinoa. Simmer for 7-8 minutes, remove from heat and let stand until the remaining water is absorbed (approx 10 minutes).  Season with cinnamon or nutmeg and add a couple slices of your favourit fruit.
Alternatively, add 1 cup of frozen berries once heat is removed, 5-10 raw almonds or walnuts and 1 tsp of honey.
