Take a break from oats and try quinoa for breakfast. This hearty whole grain is perfect in a breakfast bowl that includes apples, berries, almonds and a dash of cinnamon.

1 cup dry quinoa
2 cups water
1 medium apple, cored and diced
1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped
1 cup fresh or thawed frozen blueberries
1/2 cup raisins or chopped, pitted dates
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Place quinoa and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoa is tender and all the water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.

It was indeed a break from oatmeal which I have 4-5 times a week.  The texture was a refreshing change and I like that quinoa is a complete protein.
