Knowing about my oatmeal struggles, my buddy Liz AKA The Good Eatah surprised me with a packet of instant quinoa! I have yet to try quinoa. I bought a bag of it a month or so ago and haven't been brave enough to cook it yet but this possible solution to my hot breakfast issue made me want to try it right away.

Just add boiling water and it's ready to eat!
Ok, I admit, I didn't like it! Quinoa is a very different taste and I think if I put a little effort into it, like I did with bananas, I'll eventually grow to like it. It's worth it, did you know quinoa is a complete protein? Liz warned me that I might not like it at first but I tried really hard to be open minded. I think I will keep at it though because it's definitely a good alternative to my beloved oatmeal. If you're interested in learning more about Alti Plano Gold instant quinoa you can find them here.
On another exciting note, I received my package from Shabtai Gourmet and I've already ripped into it and tried almost everything that they sent. Stay tuned for a review and photos either later today or tomorrow!
