Quinoa Fruit Porridge

Here’s a healthy breakfast option that we love to make using quinoa, nuts and seeds. It can be made overnight and then served hot or cold in the morning with a sprinkling of your favourite fruit. It’s very quick and simple to make.

Flax seeds are high in Omega 3 and a rich dietary source of phytoestrogen.

Berries are high in antioxidants, rich in fibre and Vitamin C.
