Toasted Quinoa with Dried Fruit and Nuts

I love looking at pictures of hot cereal. I was doing it the other day and it made me hungry and I wanted to eat all of them. I love hot cereal. It warms me up on cold days and leaves me with a very satisfied feeling. Hot cereal can be eaten anytime of the day but it is usually eaten in the morning. It reminds me of a beginning of a new day and new things to accomplish. Morning is my favorite time of the day. This cereal is delicious. The added fruit and nuts is a great addition. The great thing is it is so healthy Yum!
