Breakfast Quinoa with Fruit & Maple

If you haven’t figured it out just yet I love to eat. That doesn’t necessarily mean that I am eating “bad” foods. I like to mix up. One day you may catch me eating a maple glazed donut and the other cooked quinoa with a drizzle of maple. I try to make healthy and real food choices and least 80 percent of the time.

That brings me to this breakfast quinoa. We eat quinoa quite a bit.

    I love quinoa, but I’ve never considered making it sweet instead of savory… Sounds yummy though!
