Apple Quinoa Porridge
I'm starting to get really excited about enjoying foods without any added sugar or sweeteners. When I started on this diet, I allotted to myself one small packet of xylitol per day, rationed out between my morning porridge and my green tea. Lately I haven't been using any (although I'm still not crazy about the unsweetened green tea). Since I've been almost 3 weeks on the diet, I decided to have 1/4 a granny smith apple this morning. I had a serving of leftover quinoa in the fridge, so I poured some unsweetened almond milk over it, and added two decent sized spoonfuls of raw almond butter. Popped that in the microwave for a minute and a half, then added the granny smith, chopped up, and some cinnamon. Delicious! The almond butter really helps give it some flavor and make it a nice filling breakfast.
