Porridge is one breakfast dish that I love preparing during the weekend since it is heavier than the morning smoothie we wake up with every week day, and my healthy version of this breakfast favorite recipe feels like a total indulgence.
Instead of using oats or grits, I cook a big batch of quinoa and turn it into a sweet and creamy delicacy. I am all about using quinoa in dishes instead of pasta or other grains for numerous reasons. The most important being that quinoa is gluten free and very easy to digest. It never makes me feel heavy or bloated, it contains around 15% proteins and 9 essential amino acids (which nourishes hair follicles from within), and the minerals and vitamins it contains work together to reduce brown spots and promote the production of collagen in the skin.
