Chia quinoa porridge

Yesterday morning I was in need of a quick yet filling breakfast! I turned to my trusted quinoa flakes as they are full of fibre and protein. I decided to add chia seeds to boost my omega 3 intake for the day! This porridge kept me full until lunchtime which is definitely ideal on a busy day!

The quinoa flakes take on a creamy texture once cooked. Although they are fairly bland in flavour, this enables you to be as creative as you like with your toppings! My favourite, go-to toppings are fresh strawberries, almond butter, shredded coconut and cinnamon – great for regulating blood sugar!

All into the saucepan

I believe that breakfast shouldn’t be complicated – that’s why I always add all the ingredients to the saucepan at once.

If there are leftovers, this porridge will keep in the fridge to two days in a sealed container.
