Most mornings I have quinoa porridge and I always mix between quinoa and chia, quinoa and oats, or quinoa and polenta. Quinoa, pronounced keen-wah, is a grain-like seed. Quinoa is complete protein food, which means it includes all of the eight essential amino acids that are needed for growth and repair. It is a complex carbohydrate, high in vitamins and minerals, and gluten free. Sometimes I use quinoa flakes and other times I use the traditional quinoa seed. It is so very easy and quick to do, plus it is jam-packed with nutrition!
A balanced breakfast should be composed of grains, protein and fruits, I love a dash of cinnamon on my grains to raise insulin levels and a dash of Cayenne pepper in my protein to raise my metabolism.
It's the same ritual every morning because of that depends the energy that my body will boost for the rest of the day
