Written by lwm staff. Posted in Breakfast,Brunch.

Getting bored with your usual oatmeal? Try this unique and creamy quinoa version. If you're strapped for time in the morning, make it the night before and warm it up the next day. Serve it with a dollop of plain yogurt and fresh berries or additional milk and sprinkled cinnamon.


2 cups fat-free milk, plus more for serving

1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed

1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

Swiss Fondue Bagel

Posted in Breakfast,Brunch.


1 Bagel (any bagel can be used, but a sweet bagel is not recommended)

2 tablespoons cream cheese

2 slices swiss cheese


Cut the bagel in half. Spread each half with a tablespoon of cream cheese. Put one slice of swiss cheese on each half. Place in the microwave oven for one minute, or for better results place under the broiler for approx. one minute. It is really simply–but really delicious.
