Lunch today featured a much better grain than millet! ;)
I love quinoa and don’t make it often enough!
6 grams of protein per 1/4 cup serving (uncooked). As well as many vitamins and minerals, with it being especially high in manganese, magnesium, iron, tryptophan (oh on don’t fall asleep Ange!), copper, phosphorus.
I mixed it with leftover curry sauce I made last night!
Along with a Money’s Veggie burger, high protein pita, tons of hummus, and red pepper:
This was such a filling and flavourful lunch! :) I intended to have a big fruit bowl for dessert but my tummy is a bit full right now, so I will have it as a snack in between orders later today.

Today’s question: What’s your favourite grain?
Mine is probably spelt. I only discovered it this year but it is so versatile, nutritious, easy to digest, and amazing in my baked goods! What about you?
