Looking for an alternative to oatmeal for breakfast? This diabetic-friendly Quinoa cereal is a great alternative. It has a low- glycemic index, so it doesn't spike blood sugars as high. It also contains magnesium, a mineral that may improve blood sugar levels. Quinoa is also packed with plant-based fiber and protein, so you'll feel full after eating this cereal. To make this cereal, we cooked it in unsweetened almond milk until slightly al dente. Then we topped it with fruit and nuts for natural sweetness and crunch.

Instructions

In a small saucepan over high heat, add almond milk and quinoa. Once contents start to boil, lower heat and simmer covered for about 14 minutes. You'll want most of the almond milk to be absorbed by the quinoa.
Remove from heat and add cinnamon and low-carb sweetener, stirring well. Top with blueberries, banana slices, and walnuts. Enjoy!
