Baby Bear's Porridge
baby bear’s porridge
A Nordic inspired, healthy way to begin the day, this just right, full grain hot cereal is a tasty way to eat more fiber, lower cholesterol and help keep New Year’s resolutions.
Any quinoa works, but tri-color quinoa makes a more intriguing looking finished cereal. Oat milk, while difficult to find, is a tasty substitution for the almond milk. Apples or other seasonal fruit may be substituted for the pear.

Pinch sea salt
1 pear, peeled, cored & diced
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Blueberries, raspberries, or other fruit
