What is Quinoa?

When I told my mom about this dish, her first question was, what is quinoa? So, I figured, I would start there and work my way into the recipe. After researching it, I realized I was wrong about quinoa. I thought it was a grain, but apparently, it is a seed. All I knew is that it was super good for you and I didn’t dive further than that.

Quinoa has more protein than any other seed and it is great source of calcium, B vitamins, and iron. Also, it is super easy to digest and gluten free.

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I decided to bring quinoa into my morning routine and replace my smoothie bowl with a quinoa almond fruit bowl a few days per week. This quinoa bowl is packed with yummy fruits and nutty awesomeness.

To make this a quick and easy process in the morning, I use Success® Tri-Color 100% Quinoa. It is super easy and allows you to skip the measurements and mess. Success is in the bag® cooks in only 10 minutes and is packaged in pre-portioned, BPA free boil-in-bags, so there’s no measure and no mess. It’s a fantastic shortcut! It is light and fluffy with a nutty flavor, plus it’s a good source of fiber.
