Quinoa is an incredibly versatile grain that packs a ton of protein and all of your amino acids for the day.

Make a big batch at the beginning of the week and incorprotate it into breakfasts, lunches and dinners for days to come.

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk (or vegan milk alternative)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground ginger (optional)
1 tablespoon of granola or roasted nuts of your choice
