IMG_4895

Instead of oatmeal or dry cereal, try incorporating quinoa into your breakfast. Quinoa isn’t reserved for savory dishes. It’s high in protein and fiber and keeps you full throughout the morning and into the afternoon. This recipe is a foundation for your own variations. Nix the chocolate and add vanilla for a change and switch up the fruit topping depending on what you have on hand.
