Sweet Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

For the longest time my everyday breakfast was cooked brown rice with a little olive oil and salt because regular oatmeal doesn't always agree with me. Now I've switched to this homey, comforting breakfast, which has a little more sweetness and flavor. I find a pinch of spice gives it a warm, cozy taste and aroma.

    Bellissima Note: The quinoa tends to absorb the flavors quickly I wouldn’t forgo the warmth, and I added cinnamon plus spice mix. This was in addition to fresh fruit with the teaspooon of maple syrup drizzled on top
