After my surgery a few weeks ago, I did not eat anything for two days. I slept a lot and when I was awake the last thing on my mind was food. One morning I woke up starving ! And this Cinnamon Apple Quinoa was the first thing I wanted.
It is great for breakfast, but since then I had it several times … not only for breakfast, but lunch, snack, dessert and even for dinner a couple of times as I am still learning how and what I can and can not eat.
Really does not bother me, I will have the Cinnamon Apple Quinoa everyday. It is deliciously creamy and is even better without the Blueberry topping.
Hubby and my son would also have a bowl (now and then), but seeing as they are more of the Oatmeal and Coco-Pops fans – not saying who likes which ! – I normally make single servings for myself, which is not 1/4 of the recipe (at least half the recipe for me thank you!)
