The nutty flavor of quinoa blends so well with the sweetness of the fresh peaches and blueberries, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done this sooner! Quinoa and fruit breakfast bowls are a very simple yet energizing and tasty way to start your day.

I grew up eating cereal. My kids eat cereal. Cereal is super convenient and easy and even a kindergartner can make their own breakfast.

But I have to say, as an adult, while it tastes good, I don’t find much nutrition in the ones that are out there. And, if they look like they have nutrition, they’re also loaded with sugar.

So, sugar = not good for you, and cereal, it just doesn’t stay with me. I’m hungry an hour later. Enter Quinoa and fruit breakfast bowls. If you’re looking for a more savory option, try these quinoa breakfast bowls.

Quinoa and Fruit Breakfast Bowls

Quinoa, pronounced keen-wha, is a whole grain seed that is rich in amino acids, which makes it a great source of protein. Some people would say it’s a bit like brown rice crossed with oatmeal.

I just say it’s yum. 😀 It has a nutty flavor to it, and the texture is like a smaller version of rice. I love the nutty flavor mixed with the sweetness of the fruit.

Quinoa is super versatile. I’ve had it in muffins, try these! It’s a great substitute for rice or couscous.

I like to make the quinoa ahead of time, which takes maybe 15 minutes total, and then it’s just as easy of a breakfast to put together as cereal, or any other quick breakfast.

Add a splash of milk or your favorite milk alternative, and you have yourself a breakfast that tastes good, is good for you, and ready in minutes.
