Say “Good Morning!” and mean it with our Quinoa Berry Breakfast Bowl!

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, and experts suggest that eating a healthy breakfast may help reduce obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. With that in mind, how about a complete breakfast that’s super-easy to prepare and really good for you too? Our QUINOA BERRY BREAKFAST BOWL is here to help.

Here are some key things to consider when you go to make it:

Quinoa is the star of this recipe and is a great source of iron, magnesium, vitamins B and E, potassium and fibre. This power-packed grain also contains lysine, which is essential for tissue growth and repair.

Cooking it may be easier than you think whether you’re using a vegetable steamer or a sauce pan. I use a 1:1 ratio of grain to water and suggest letting the quinoa rest for 10 minutes after cooking it. This ensures it comes out light and fluffy.

Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries.

The four berries used in this recipe are favourites. Blueberries are rich with vitamin C while strawberries are an excellent source of fibre. Raspberries contain cancer-fighting selenium while blackberries have vitamins C and K and more antioxidants than the other combined. Berries are good for us!

Hemp seeds are considered the most nutritious seed in the world and contain the most concentrated balance of proteins, essential fats (omega 3 and 6), vitamins (E, D, B1, B2, B6) plus enzymes. Adding a sprinkle into this breakfast bowl tastes good too. If you can’t find hemp seeds go with our second choice, flax seeds.

The maple syrup and coconut milk really enhance the flavours of the other ingredients. Feel free to use honey or agave nectar as syrup substitutes, and use other nut milks to suite your tastes.

The best thing about this nutritious, healthy, satiating bowl of goodness is the ease of the experience. I suggest steaming your quinoa and preparing your mixed berries the night before. Then in the morning, toss the ingredients together in a bowl, stir them up and in two minutes flat – YES, TWO MINUTES FLAT – you have the perfect start to your day.

Don’t worry is you came here and think you need more than just this healthy bowl of goodness. We’ve got you covered.
