Quinoa is composed of 70% carbohydrates, 15% protein, few lipids, fibers and many minerals such as iron, manganese and copper. Quinoa contains more protein than cereals and especially contains all the essential amino acids that are partially lacking in the latter.
Quinoa is therefore particularly recommended as part of a vegetarian diet. On the other hand, quinoa is that it does not contain gluten. People intolerant to gluten can therefore consume and thus replace wheat.
Quinoa is a non-negligible fiber intake which allows it to be considered a food for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. It normalizes glucose, insulin and cholesterol levels.
⅓ cup of quinoa flakes
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon nut butter / seed
½ cup frozen blueberries (fresh will work but you will not get the same color)
½ scoop protein powder (optional)
Pinch of cinnamon
Sweetener of choice
