Love it!, Member my2ltlbears

I was a little hesitant about trying this because I've had savory quinoa, but never sweet! I made it this morning, and I absolutely love it! It's a nice change from the everyday same old breakfasts I eat. I don't care for oatmeal that much, so this is a great substitute for that. Thank you Ashley!
