High-Protein Breakfast

The best way to start your day is with protein and vitamins. The quinoa, fruit, and almonds all give you everything you need. In fact, this will jump-start your metabolism and make you feel full for longer.

It will power you through your morning so you don’t get that mid-morning slump. Try this for your next breakfast and you’ll never turn back to pastries again. 

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 a great source of calcium, B vitamins, and iron. Also, it is super easy to digest and gluten-free.

Quinoa Almond Fruit Bowl Recipe that is made with Success Tri-Color 100% Quinoa boil in a bag with sliced banana, blueberries, almonds, almond butter and agave perfect for breakfast.

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.


Is Agave Syrup Good for You? 

Agave syrup is a very popular sweetener in the health world. Lots of people use it because it has a low glycemic index. That means it has a different effect on your blood sugar than cane sugar or high fructose corn syrup. 

But if you are watching your carbs and sugar intake, be careful with agave. It is still high in sugar. Unlike Stevia, it is not calorie-free. 

Almond Substitute

If you are allergic to almonds are want a substitute for any other reason, that’s easy to do. You can use any other nut butter to replace the almond. In fact, you can use cashew milk, cashew butter, and cashews to replace all the almonds. 

Here are some more ideas to replace the almonds in my recipe: 

  • Peanuts and peanut butter
  • Use oatmilk instead of almond milk
  • Sunbutter and sunflower seeds
