Recipe by kitty.rock

This yogurt and quinoa breakfast dish from nutritionist Cynthia Sass's "Cinch!" cookbook gets an extra boost of nutrition from a surprising source: cinnamon. The flavorful spice contains four times as many antioxidants as a handful of blueberries. From The Martha Stewart Show, January 2011 and wholeliving.com.
