Quinoa breakfast bowl

From: Ohsheglows blog
Breakfast is always challenging for me because it's hard to get enough protein when you don't eat eggs.  I love this dish and make it one day and have leftovers for the following day or two!  It is very easy.

1 cup quinoa (rinsed)
1 can light coconut milk (14ounce) from Trader Joe's  (If you use another brand use regular coconut milk…some light milks aren't very good)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
dried cranberries
nuts (pecans or walnuts)
hemp seed/chia seed
**You can buy all these ingredients at Trader Joe's!

Rinse quinoa and place in sauce pan with can of light coconut milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Cook covered for 15 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked.  Stir.  Place desired amount in bowl and top with nuts, dried cranberries, hemp seed, and chia seed.  I add extra almond milk to taste.  Put left over quinoa in a sealed container in the refrigerator.  Reheat leftovers in microwave and top with ingredients.  Enjoy!
