Quinoa Breakfast Bowl {The Perfect Low Carb Breakfast}

Mornings are typically pretty hectic around here. It usually consists of waking to a 630am alarm, pressing the snooze button a couple of times until about 645am, and finally out of bed by 650a. By that time, I usually have somewhere between 10-15mins to get my workout gear on refreshen up and make my morning dash towards the kids rooms. Next challenge is getting the little ones ready for school and off to get a healthy morning meal prepared while juggling lunch and snack time prep. Its a balancing act and one that I have yet to fully conquer. Until I do, I choose my battles and give myself a pat on the back for the small victories. Like feeding the littles a healthy breakfast and actually enjoying some for me too! This is why I love this Quinoa Breakfast Bowl. Not only it is simple to make with the freshest ingredients but it is the most delicious low carb breakfast I’ve had in awhile. Its a life saver in these cray cray winter mornings.

  1. 6 tbl egg whites

  4. 1-2 tbl of crumbled feta cheese
  5. 1/2 cup of your favorite Quinoa cooked (here I used Tricolored Quinoa)


What You’ll Do

  2. Add egg whites to the onion and spinach medley allowing a minute or two for the egg whites to heat before stirring it all up.
