Quinoa Breakfast Jars
I created this recipe while I was totally in a bind! I was all out of oats and I was meal prepping. All I had was berries, my Cute Nutrition protein and various unsalted roasted nuts. What’s a busy person to do when they are preparing for morning meals?
Improvise. It’s easy. Quinoa is a grain you can do anything with, plus it’s high in protein. It’s changes up your overnight oats just a smidge. You can check out my instagram from Sept 5 for a really cool hack for this one!
2 cup uncooked quinoa
10 Tablespoons of chia seeds
5 scoops of your favorite protein
1 large container of your favorite berries rinsed and chopped
1/3 cup of nuts
- Boil your quinoa until fluffy.
- Layer your quinoa, chia seeds, protein, and berries in each container. That’s 1 cup of quinoa, 2 table spoons of chia seeds, 1 scoop of protein and berries per container.
- When you're ready to eat it add your steamed non diary milk. You can use water, but milk will give you more of a breakfast feel. It’s very filling, but enough to fill you up throughout your day.
- Add your nuts on top and stir.
