Loaded Quinoa Poached Egg Breakfast Bowls
Everyone is always asking for new breakfast ideas, as it seems that is one meal we all get in a rut and lean towards our “usual”.
These quinoa bowls are full of our FAVORITE breakfast foods (aka all the goodies) while being packed with an awesome balance of macronutrients and micronutrients!While we usually think of quinoa at other meals as a savory side dish – I think this complex carbohydrate is just the thing we require to give us that nice steady energy to start our day!
Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids.
It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.
