Breakfast | Cashew Craisin Quinoa

Here's the deal. I usually have a green or pink smoothie for breakfast, but when its 20 degrees outside, sometimes that icy drink doesn't sound too hot - literally. SO what's a cold sleepy girl gotta do? Make a yummy pot of creamy Cinnamon Quinoa! 

For todays breakfast I made Cinnamon Quinoa and topped it off with : sprouts, raw cashews and craisins. One word, YUM. I'm a HUGE fan of raw cashews and craisins it's the perfect duo in my opinion. So try it, because you'll like it!

Cinnamon Quinoa
i love me a yummy cinnamony-mapley warm breakfast and this always hits the spot. 
the quinoa seed usually doubles if not triples in size. 
i store leftovers in the fridge for a quick breakfast or snack. 

2 cups water
1 cup quinoa
2-3 tsp ground cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (can also use honey or agave)
dash of real salt

add all ingredients together except quinoa. when water/cinnamon mixture is boiling add quinoa. cover and let simmer for 15 minutes.
