Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Quinoa, pronounced (KEEN-wah), was all the rage a few years ago. Bottom line, it still should be! Especially for an IBS Sister. I know personally, I stopped making quinoa, and I’m not really sure why! I madeΒ a whole box of itΒ yesterday, and plan on eating it for every meal this week! Yes, that includes breakfast! I made a Quinoa Breakfast Bowl this morning, and it was absolutely delicious. Move over, oatmeal!

Quinoa is a complete protein, gluten free, low-fodmap, and easy to digest. This needs to be in an IBS Sister’s diet!

I started with 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa (111 calories), and then added a tablespoon of coconut flakes (33 calories), 1 tablespoon of almond butter (95 calories), 1 banana (100 calories), 1 tablespoon of chia seeds (70 calories), and a dash of himalayan sea salt.

I then added a teaspoon of coconut oil (about 40 calories).

Before putting it in the microwave, I dashed with cinnamon and a packet of stevia. I microwaved the bowl for 1 minute (I don’t like my food really hot, you could do 1-2 minutes).

I noticed it was a little dry when I pulled it out of the microwave, so I added a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (5 calories).

For about 450 healthy calories, you get this superfood breakfast, the Quinoa Breakfast Bowl! I’m feeling full and satisfied after the breakfast bowl, thinking it will hold me over until lunch! You can add any toppings to your Quinoa Breakfast Bowl, such as berries, yogurt (if your IBS allows), honey (if your IBS allows), matcha powder, flaxseed, whatever you want! If you have other ideas for toppings, let me know in the comments! Tomorrow, I plan on putting a little quinoa in my breakfast smoothie. Stay tuned!

XOXO, IBS Sister
