Did you know that quinoa is one of the highest protein sources available?
Cultivated by the ancient Incas, this is a true super grain and great for wellness warriors! It’s also full of fiber which is perfect for your digestion, making you feel full and helping with weight-loss. Make a batch and keep it in the fridge during the week. Mix with salad ingredients for lunch or chicken or fish and vegetables for dinner to make a super healthy meal.
Here is one of my favorite quinoa recipes to get you started. Bon appetit!
Breakfast Quinoa with Pear and Walnuts

- 2 cups water (or dairy or nut milk)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Raw honey or maple syrup to taste
- Toppings: 1 chopped pear, chopped raw walnuts
- Optional toppings: Blueberries, ginger
Combine quinoa, water (or milk), cinnamon and vanilla in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and let cook for 15 minutes until quinoa is cooked an you can fluff it with a fork. Serve in a bowl with chopped pear blueberries, a little raw honey, and enjoy.
