"Ditch the boxed cereals once and for all and indulge in a truly “whole” and “real” breakfast bowl that won’t bloat your belly and will keep you completely satisfied for hours thanks to its protein, good fat and fiber. I look forward to this breakfast after a good run or workout. The best thing about this recipe is that you can use whatever ingredients you have on hand, or even better, what’s in season! Cook your quinoa ahead of time and breakfast preparation will be even quicker."
