4 Ingredient Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl. The Wild Manifesto. Gluten-free and Vegan

This quinoa breakfast bowl is my go-to every morning.

 

So many people ask me what the eff I eat given my allergies - so here it is, folks! This bad boy.

 

I love this bowl and I eat it all the time. It's fast, easy, and it really hits the spot 'cause I usually crave something a 'lil sweet in the morning.

Why I love this brekkie bowl:

 

  1. Well, it's pretty darn easy to make. It only has 4 ingredients and usually #IRL, I don't add the toppings because I'm running out the door in the morning.
  2. It's nutrient-dense. One cup of cooked quinoa has 8 grams of protein, it's rich in iron, and it's one of the few grains that contain all the nine essential amino acids (like meat-based protein sources). Also, quinoa has more protein than oats (and I'm also allergic to oats). So, for those two reasons I opt for it instead. Plus, the almond butter adds extra protein, vitamin E, and monounsaturated fatty acids (the good kind of fat). Raspberries add extra vitamin C and are low on the glycemic index, meaning that they won't spike your blood sugar.
  3. And, it keeps me full until lunch! Which is great, 'cause I hate half-assing breakfast and getting hungry (I really mean hangry) at 10 am.
