Quinoa with Berries for Breakfast

Being a “grain” that contains loads of protein, Quinoa is a very nutritious way to start your day.  This recipe is very adaptable…you can use any fruit {apples, pears, apricots}, milk {whole, skim, soy}, or sweetener  {agave, brown sugar, stevia} here.  It would also be great with some chopped nuts on top!
