By now, you probably already know what a superfood quinoa breakfast is, from being the only grain that is a complete protein to providing a filling 6 grams of fiber per cooked cup.

It’s also easier than ever to find quinoa in your grocery store, and I am loving the new frozen microwave-in-the-bag versions that make cooking quinoa quicker and easier than ever!
