Sharon Palmer

This deep Red Quinoa Berry Breakfast Bowl, rich in health-protective anthocyanins, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, will fuel you until lunchtime and beyond. It’s based on an ancient Peruvian staple quinoa, which comes in a variety of colors, such as red, white, and black. Legend has it that this hearty ancient grain gave stamina to Incan warriors long, long ago. I think you’ll find its nutrient lineup does the same for you, too.

Make a batch of this Red Quinoa Berry Breakfast Bowl, which includes red quinoa, spices, maple syrup, walnuts, flax seeds, and red berries, to feed the whole family, or to warm up each morning during the week. Just pop it into the microwave in the morning, and you’ll have a yummy, healthy, plant-powered breakfast awaiting you. You can even pour it in a mason jar to bring to work to munch on later.
