If you haven’t noticed, quinoa is the new super food. It’s high in protein (12%-18%), and contains a balanced set of essential amino acids — this means it’s a suprisingly complete protein for us veegetarians. It’s also high in fiber and iron. And, as if it didn’t have enough going for it, NASA is thinking about growing it in space (no, I didn’t make that up).
Quinoa is quite possibly the perfect thing to eat in the morning to start your day off on the right foot. And when you use leftover quinoa from the night before it is also quick to prepare.
- Cooked quinoa
- Dash of cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
- Date pieces
- Pecan pieces
- Drizzle of pure maple syrup
- Microwave your cooked quinoa for 30-60 seconds, or re-heat on the stove.
- Mix in the spices, dried fruit, pecans and maple syrup.
