More than Quinoa Cereal


What's all the buzz about? Quinoa! For starters, it is a complete protein. That means it has all nine essential amino acids. But wait ─ there's more! In addition to boasting more fiber than other grains (like twice as much!) it also contains riboflavin (feeds cells with energy), manganese (antioxidant), iron (for healthy red blood cells), magnesium (an important mineral) and even lysine (aids tissues in proper growth and healing). This super grain is seriously good for you!

This delicious quinoa recipe, featured as a 'must try' in our complimentary cleanse, was such a hit that we want everyone to have the chance to enjoy it. So what are you waiting for? Grab a pot and start boiling!


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • ¼ cup hemp milk (rich in amino acids and essential fatty acids) or coconut milk (easy to digest and loaded with nutrients)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp sesame seed
  • 1 tsp butter (grass fed preferably)
  • 1 tsp raw, organic honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 6-8 pecans



Heat water to a boil. Pour quinoa and salt into boiling water, cover, and simmer for 15 -20 minutes. Once all the water is evaporated, and the quinoa is light and fluffy, pour in the remaining ingredients and stir very well. Top off with pecans.

Enjoy the deliciousness!
