The last thing you may want to do when you're tired and hungry is cook. But keep some cooked quinoa on hand and you'll never be more than three minutes away from this warming and renewing breakfast from Smith's book. You simply mix heated quinoa with cinnamon and almond butter, top with blueberries and add honey and almond milk to taste. The spice will boost your senses, and the quinoa, a carbohydrate, can help your brain produce serotonin
, which plays an important role in affecting mood. Plus, the "super grain" is a complex carb, so it takes longer to digest, making it a sort of "time-release" energizer.
