Breakfast Quinoa with Banana

I heard someone mention their favorite breakfast was quinoa with banana, honey, and milk. So I tried it and was surprised that I loved it! The banana and honey are an appealing flavor pairing. A breakfast for champions - healthy, natural, and whole.

Breakfast Quinoa with Banana

1/2 cup cooked quinoa
half a banana, sliced
1 tsp. honey
1 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. crushed walnuts, optional

Follow the package directions to cook the quinoa. Or try it in a rice cooker with 2 parts water to 1 part quinoa (works like a charm). See this link for more information on how to cook quinoa. Cook as much quinoa as you need. It's easy to cook more than one meal's worth and keep it in the fridge. Warm it in the microwave when you're ready to eat the leftovers. Then add sliced bananas, a small spoonful of honey, and a splash of milk. Optional: add crushed walnuts.
