I get the same question all the time. quinoa for breakfast? And the answer is YES! It's so delicious and, just like porridge, it keeps you full for hours and energised throughout your morning. This combination of ingredients packs in the protein as well, due to the combination of quinoa and almond butter. I've made it nice and sweet, the healthy way, to get that sweet-tooth fix.
Julie's wholesome hint: Plums are just as high in antioxidants and phytonutrients as blueberries. The important thing is to never peel your plums as the skin is where many of the antioxidants and phytonutrients are hiding.
