Benefits: Quinoa is a gluten-free, complete protein with all amino acids and plenty of fiber/protein to keep you fueled and full during your busy day pre-lunch hour. Like cereal - it’s sweet. Unlike cereal - it doesn’t require refined sugar, which packs on the pounds! Rather, you can just top it with fruit (yay!) or a tiny bit of maple syrup.
