Red quinoa…

…for breakfast?


I bet you never thought about Quinoa as a breakfast choice, right?

Just like Oats, Oat Bran, or Amaranth, quinoa is a great choice. It’s a complex carb which means it’ll take a bit longer to digest, fueling your body for the day away or an AM sweat sesh.

So, what exactly is in the bowl? Here’s what is in this super fast and easy gluten-free pre-workout breakfast of Quinoa: 1/2 cup Red Quinoa, 1/4 apple, thinly sliced, organic raisins, dash of ground cinnamon, stevia (to taste), fresh chopped walnuts, flax seeds, and unsweetened almond milk.
