Hop over to the 14-Day Energy Reboot page to find out more and to join in. Let’s get 2018 off to an awesome start 🙂
Now, let’s talk about these Breakfast Quinoa Jars! If you’ve tried overnight oats, this recipe is along the same lines. The quinoa is made in advance and you can add the toppings you like to each jar, then keep them in the fridge for a quick and easy breakfast on-the-go.
I wanted to showcase a variety of seasonal ingredient combinations so you can enjoy these Breakfast Quinoa Jars any time of year! Whether you enjoy sweet or savory flavors for breakfast, hopefully there’s a flavor pairing below that you’ll enjoy. I’m hooked on the dried figs & peanut butter combination right now and love how it tastes with quinoa.
Persimmons & Walnuts
Wild Blueberries & Coconut
Strawberries & Pistachios
Nut Butter & Dried Figs
Boiled Egg + Avocado + Tomatoes + Feta Dill Greek Yogurt Dressing
These Breakfast Quinoa Jars are a healthy breakfast on-the-go that you can customize to your liking! #recipe Click To Tweet
These Breakfast Quinoa Jars are the perfect balanced breakfast because they contain a whole grain (the quinoa), fiber from the fruit and/or vegetable, and protein from the quinoa, nuts/nut butter, and egg (in the case of the savory quinoa jar). So much nutrition power in one little jar!
If you want some additional nutrition power, try some of these mix-ins:
Ground flaxseed meal, shredded coconut, chia seeds, honey, hemp seeds, bee pollen
I’d love to know what flavor combination you’re most excited to try so leave me a comment below! And if you make the recipe, please tag me on Instagram (@karmanmeyer) and use #thenutritionadventure so I can see it. Wishing a happy, healthy new year to you!
