Breakfast Quinoa Cups
Here’s a FUN idea to get your weekend off to a GREAT start!
While we usually think of quinoa at other meals as a savory side dish – I think this complex carbohydrate is just the thing we require to give us that nice steady energy to start our day!
Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids.
It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.
Yeah…ditch the breakfast cereal and try our quinoa breakfast cups one morning you’re feeling like stepping outside the norm. I think you’ll be happily surprised!
➡️ Rachel’s Notes:
➡️ You may use *any* seasonal fruit or berry in place of the kiwi/strawberry combination, so have some fun with that!
➡️I use unsweetened, grass-fed Greek yogurt (whatever is on sale) but coconut yogurt, or a non-dairy yogurt will work just as well.
➡️Try cottage cheese in place of the yogurt for another protein-packed breakfast or snack idea!Makes 4 servings
- 1 cup uncooked quinoa
