This morning I couldn’t wait to start Sari’s Sugar Detox so I cooked up a breakfast recipe that was inspired by the Couldn’t Be Pareve website. I omitted the sugar and replaced it with a little bit of honey. This recipe is gluten free, soy-free, and vegan. I really enjoyed this warm nutty quinoa. It really made me feel like I was finally giving myself a great start to a long day. You may have to play around with the amount of cinnamon or honey that you prefer, but feel free to add a variety of fruits or ground flax seed. This quinoa recipe is large enough for at least 2 people so make sure to share it with a family member or just cut the recipe in half.
I can’t guarantee that your kids will say that it tastes as good as a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but you can give it a try! Enjoy ! Marlene
