Soaked Quinoa? Save time in total!

My secret for creamy quinoa bowl is soaking the quinoa overnight. Yes, I know that it sounds annoying to soak it overnight. However, I always tell myself not to be lazy and ask how long does it take to make that extra effort?! All I need to do is pour some water on top of the quinoa, and that’s it.

(I also like to soak my millet and chia seeds as you can see from my previous recipes. It’s just activated nuts, seeds, and grains are so much better for our digestive system that I always try to make that extra effort to soak them. Well, almost always. I’m still a human.). 

How hard can it be!? In the end, I save time on cooking, and it is so much easier to digest! I literally can feel that my body smiles once I have had this magical warm breakfast bowl.
