  1. I just made this for breakfast. It was delicious. Even my 2 and 4 year old liked it. That's a win in my book!

  2. How long will this be good for. I am interviewing for a new position that will now require me to take breakfast, lunch, and 2 snacks with me. I already have a ton of crockpot recipes so that I can have dinner done-ish when I get home in the evenings.

    1. Jennifer, if you store the cooked quinoa and the roasted blueberries separately, and put them together in the morning, they should last a few days.
