I haven't experimented with Quinoa much but I do cook it like oat meal and eat it with honey and milk like oatmeal. I think it has a similar texture and taste. It is very filling and sticks with you.

Good luck with it and I will look forward to hearing what others do with it.

You can eat quinoa for any meal. It can take a variety of additions or seasoning. I'm sure you can find lots of recipes online. Or you can use it as a sub for rice in any recipe.

For breakfast, I like to put 1 cup of gluten-free grains (it could be just quinoa, something else, or a mixture) to 3 1/2 cups water in my crockpot at night, and set it at low. In the morning, I add 1/2 cup of nondairy milk, 1/2 cup of dried fruit, and any seasoning that appeals (I seem to like a little maple syrup right now). Then cook another 30 minutes. This makes enough for 3 meals. You can double this recipe, too. Then other mornings you just need to microwave and there you go.

If you have a Wild Oats near you they have a free Bulk Food Guide that is really helpful to have on hand.

It gives info about the items that are sold in the bulk department, grains, flours, legumes, etc and tips and instructions on how to cook them.

Millet is included in the guide. It can be made as a cereal/porridge, a side grain pilaf type dish, and millet cakes just to name a few.

I haven't used millet a whole lot, but I found it tasted best in the pressure cooker, a little scary to use but once I got the hang of it it was easy.

I just followed the guide with the grain to water ratio appropriate for the pressure cooker, threw in some sliced onion, shredded carrot, and some ghee, makes a very tasty side dish.

You can take this cooked mixture and add egg and a little millet flour to make millet cakes by browning them in a skillet with a little olive oil.

If you prepare it like oatmeal it makes a great hot cereal, top with fruit, chopped nuts or nut butter, or yogurt, the possibilities are endless.

I take (peeled) apples and boil them in some water, and once they're applsauce-y but still a bit chunky, I add enough water to equal the amount you would use for your serving of quinoa, and cook the quinoa in that. Doesn't need any sweetener, tastes delicious.

If you're meaning quinoa flakes, then yes, that's like oatmeal. But if you're meaning just plain quinoa, I like to make it with chicken broth. I think it's a 2:1 ratio, so, 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups chicken broth. It's reallllly good this way, I won't eat it any other way.

For quinoa flakes, you can do cinnamon and agave (or maple syrup) with some apples. It's a great breakfast.

    Been doing it for a week now, I am trying doctors best and got a deal on some from Vitacost both in capsule form to avoid the crap they put in the other forms I found it available. I am actually using both one in the morning one in the afternoon. Might not work for everyone but I am seeing why many bodybuilders swear by it in the gym. I just figured if it might help people that get muscle fatigue easily with daily life. 
    For what it's worth, I've noticed that if it's just iodine I will not get any other symptoms. In addition to the rash, I typically get GI symptoms, fatigue, and sometimes joint swelling when I ingest gluten. I don't typically eat seafood or stuff with lots of iodized salt, but sometimes I do on special occasions knowing that there will be some relatively minor consequences. Typically this is because I am traveling - canned tuna, salty snacks, jerky etc. are often the only nutritionally bala
While a Celiac reaction requires actual consumption of gluten, I take no risks.  Sunscreen might melt into my mouth a long bike trip or I could bite a nail.   I use CeraVe lotion for my face.  In winter, I use their heavier cream.  I also use the Equate “CeraVe” version by Walmart which is made in Canada.  I use a lot of sunscreen.  I buy Equate which does not contain gluten, is recommended by Consumer reports and is inexpensive.  Do not use CeraVe sunscreen.  For some reason they changed t
