Are you getting tired of your same old breakfast routine? It happens to the best of us, but I've got a recipe that will kickstart your day and get you up and out of the house in no time. This energizing Power Bowl is easy to make and packed with nutrients. You know what they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you want to be sure to nourish your body from the inside out. Incorporating quinoa into your breakfast provides a lot of bang for your nutritional buck. It's a complete protein that is rich in fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and low in calories and fat. Plus, it's gluten-free. You can't go wrong!
