Move over oats, there’s a new bowl in town and it’s super yummy and packed with protein!
I am a DIE HARD fan of oats. Seriously – don’t get between me and my oatmeal, I get defensive haha! But oats (any form or fashion) have been a go-to breakfast for me over the last couple of years. After restricting oats from my diet for SEVERAL years, I just can’t get enough of them now!
BUT, I am always willing to try new things, so that is why I turned to quinoa as an alternative. Quinoa is packed with protein, is gluten free, and can be eaten sweet or savory! It seemed like the perfect option to create a breakfast bowl with!
Honestly, this quinoa breakfast bowl comes in as a close second to oats. It’s just as thick and creamy, and provides my body with so much fuel to keep me going till lunch. Quinoa is also pretty bland by itself – so you can really add any flavor you want to the bowl and it’ll completely satisfy your cravings!
Just load it up like you would a traditional oatmeal bowl with ALL the toppings and now you have a quick and easy alternative to oats – just in case you get tired of oatmeal! LOL is that even possible though?
