Quinoa

Move over oatmeal, this South American grain (technically, it’s a seed) makes a super satisfying breakfast. Not only does it boast more protein than any other grain, its protein is complete, meaning that it provides all of the eight essential amino acids that our bodies need. One cup of cooked quinoa packs 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of filling fiber, keeping your appetite in check all morning long. Plus, it’s loaded with minerals like iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. For a new twist on hot cereal, simmer yours with dried fruit and top with a drizzle of honey or try our recipe for Hot Quinoa Cereal with Maple Syrup Apples.
