Some people go through a tough time thinking of what to eat for breakfast. This is a common dilemma for many of us. While others are too busy thinking of the perfect breakfast, some people have already found the perfect solution: a Quinoa breakfast. What makes Quinoa a perfect breakfast dish? It is a great way to start the day because of the following reasons:
• It has a hassle-free preparation. Easy preparation is what most of us needs for breakfast. Since we have to go to work early, we have to eat something that will not take long in preparing. This is the reason why Quinoa breakfast cereals are so popular. Quinoa is very flexible. There are lots of ways to cook it. Some use a food steamer while others cook Quinoa using a rice cooker. It will take about 10-15 minutes to cook.
• Quinoa is versatile. You might get tired eating cereals over and over again but with Quinoa, you might be excited to try all varieties of cooking that it offers. It is really flexible; you can make it into just about anything. There are even Quinoa breads, cereals, porridge and salads.
• Quinoa has all the nutrients that you need. It contains the carbohydrates that you need to survive the day. Since it is a slow releasing carbohydrate, you are assured of feeling full the whole day. This will allow you to eat less during the day. As a result, you are able to achieve your desired weight goals. It also has the complete proteins that you need. It is said that the protein content of Quinoa is comparable to milk. Protein is very important in our body functions. It aids in our growth and development as well as the repair of the cells. It is also useful in fighting off diseases. It also has the minerals and vitamins that we need including calcium for our bones and Vitamin E for the skin. It also has omega3 fatty acids, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc.
It is little wonder that the Quinoa breakfast (long enjoyed in South and Central America) is finally taking the United States by storm!
