I love eating quinoa for breakfast. Quinoa is a good for your food and a staple in my kitchen. Did you know that quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat? It is a complete protein because it includes all nine essential amino acids (the Word’s Healthiest Foods).

Quinoa:

  • Promotes energy production
  • Promotes heart health
  • Promotes optimal health

This recipe is a healthy breakfast that will leave you filled.
