Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Enjoy a complete vegetable protein when starting your day with a nutrient-rich quinoa breakfast. In comparison to cereal grasses like wheat, quinoa is higher in fat content and can provide valuable amounts of heart-healthy fats as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day and our Quinoa Breakfast Bowl is a great way to energize you and satiate your hunger until lunch. The wealth of health-protective nutrients in this power breakfast include providing 201% DV (Daily Value) for manganese, 67% DV for vitamin B1, 51% DV for folate, 49% DV for vitamin B2, 44% DV for protein, 44% DV for zinc, 36% DV for vitamin B6, and 36% DV for vitamin E, and much more!
