Quinoa and Brown Rice
Both quinoa and brown rice are excellent sources of protein, fiber and carbohydrates. The combination of these nutrients equates to a lower glycemic index, so you won’t experience raises (and crashes) in blood sugar.
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa and brown rice (½ cup each)
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • Combine with:
  • 1 Tbs pure grade B maple syrup
  • Lemon zest to taste
  • 1 tsp Cardamom
  • 1 Tbs toasted pumpkin seeds
  1. Cook over medium-low heat until milk is absorbed and quinoa and brown rice are tender.
