Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I'm currently visiting family in CA and my parents have a limited pantry in comparison to what I am accustomed to at home. Lucky for me, they had some leftover uncooked quinoa, goji berries, and walnuts. I brought along some EAS Vanilla Whey Protein Powder and was able to create my version of a quinoa breakfast bowl. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Combine cooked quinoa, goji berries, and walnuts in a bowl.
  2. In a shaker bottle or separate bowl, mix protein powder and water until protein powder is completely dissolved.
  3. Pour protein powder + water mixture into the bowl with the remaining ingredients.

This crockpot recipe is one of my favorite, simple, yet delicious meals to make when I don't have a copious amount of time to cook. The chicken, kale, and quinoa merry well together to create a light and healthy stew for dinner or lunch. Enjoy!
