Quinoa – oh how I love this grain! I had such positive feedback from my chicken quinoa recipe and multiple requests for this porridge so here it is! (adapted from a Michelle Bridges recipe).
Breakfast is absolutely crucial if you want to lose weight and stay healthy and this is one of my favourite breakfasts – especially after a big training session…
