I’m always looking for a healthy breakfast that's easy to cook and doesn't bore my taste buds.
On top of that, I happen to be car-less for the month of June, so I need all the protein I can get in the morning for the long bike commute to work!
This breakfast was exactly what I needed. Quinoa is filled with protein, but it’s much healthier than eating a couple of eggs because you don’t get all that saturated fat and cholesterol.
On top of everything else, I like to call it straw-na-wa, so that’s fun

next time you wake up and really need to conquer the day.
It’s easy to make this for any amount of people. The recipe listed below is for two.
It’s finally strawberry season up here in New England, and these farmers market strawberries were fantastic.
Most people would just put the fruit on top, but I like to mix a little in towards the end of cooking to really get the flavor throughout.
Nice and thick and ready to serve.
I’ve been making this all week and I think it will be come a breakfast staple for me.Dan Whalen repeats straw-wa-na in his head while eating this dish.
