Cranberry & Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa

Life on the Vedge: Cranberry & Apple Cinnamon Breakfast QuinoaThe most important meal of the day is also my most boring, meaning I have eggs almost every single day. (I’m really banking that the recent research showing eggs don’t raise cholesterol is true! I can’t get enough of them.) So, I am trying to switch it up at least once a week, and this breakfast quinoa is a good way to get protein – plus, you can make a big batch and save it for future breakfasts. When you warm it up again, add a bit of extra milk and you’re good to go.

Ingredients (Makes 3-4 servings):Trader Joe's Tricolor Quinoa
1 cup quinoa, rinsed (I used Trader Joe’s tri color quinoa, because it’s pretty!)

1 cup coconut almond milk (or any milk)

3 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp sugar

1 apple, chopped into small pieces and covered in a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning

1/4 cup dried cranberries
