Living an anti-inflammatory life is not always easy! Finding delicious meals that are organic, plant-based and free of gluten, dairy, corn, soy, egg and toxic oils is not always possible. That's okay. Remember we have the ability to make a new decision every minute of every day. One "bad" meal won't ruin your entire day.
Below you will find an alternative breakfast recipe. A warm quinoa berry bowl; simple, delicious and healthy. Add extra protein with hemp seeds or crushed nuts, maybe even a tablespoon of some almond butter if you so dare.
Quinoa is a high protein, gluten free grain that doesn’t have to be reserved to just lunch and dinner. Take a stab at this recipe and let us know how you like it!

What you’ll need...
» 1 cup water
» 1 cup almond milk (or alternative milk, preferably homemade, but let's be real if not go get some MALK Almond Milk, it's delicious and the cleanest ones around)
» 1 cup quinoa, toasted
» salt to taste, (can also be left out for low to no salt added diets!)
» 4 tsp honey or maple syrup (I used 2 tsp honey and drizzled 1/2 tsp on top)
» 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
» berries! (I used 1/4 cup of blueberries!)
» toasted chopped nuts (I had hemp seeds so I added 2 tbl)
How to make it
💥Combine almond milk, water, quinoa, and a generous pinch of salt in a medium saucepan.
💥Bring to a boil over high heat.
💥Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. The texture should be that of cooked oatmeal.
💥Turn off heat; let stand covered 5 minutes.
💥Stir in berries, if desired, and cinnamon.
💥Transfer to 4 bowls and top with nuts or hemp seeds, for more protein!
Drizzle 1 tsp sweetener of choice over each
