I am not an oatmeal person at all I don't know... something about the texture (so mushy and soggy) has always turned me off. So this for me is a great alternative to a delicious warm bowl of healthy goodness in the morning.
I literally have this 3 to 4 times a week it's THAT good and most importantly it's super fast to whip up! This is my go to breakfast when I don't have time on those busy mornings.
To make mornings easier because I'm also not a morning person at all (You would think with all these breakfast recipes) I will usually make a big batch of quinoa every week so all I have to do is heat up a cup of quinoa and assemble the rest for an easy simple breakfast.
This quinoa breakfast bowl includes your own protein powder and delicious toppings for a super protein packed breakfast!
