Quinoa is quite possibly the perfect thing to have for breakfast to start your day off on the right foot.
You’ve probably heard of quinoa—it is hailed as a super food. It’s high in protein (12%-18%) and contains a balanced set of essential amino acids — this means it’s a surprisingly complete protein. It’s also high in fiber and iron.
Here’s what you need…
½ cup quinoa, cooked in water according to instructions on package
1 Tablespoon golden raisins
1 Tablespoon date pieces, chopped
1 Tablespoon pecan pieces, chopped
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
Drizzle of pure maple syrup
1. Top cooked quinoa with raisins, date pieces, pecan pieces, cinnamon, nutmeg and a drizzle of maple syrup.
