Vegan MoFo Day 5: quinoa for breakfast

quinoa for breakfast

I love a big and filling breakfast, but most of the times I don’t have the time to make me one. I get up quite early in the morning, cook for lunch, enjoy my coffee, make a smoothie and go to work. I am really happy with my smoothie, cause it gives me enough energy to start my day and I don’t feel hungry until it’s time for lunch. But making a sweet big bowl of quinoa with lots of nuts and fruits in it, it’s a different story. It makes me feel happy! and I mean really happy! It puts a stupid smile on my face. Even when my day sucks. So give it a try! This is one of my favorite quinoa recipes for breakfast, packed with protein, iron and fiber. What else could you ask for?
