Puffed Quinoa

Puffed Quinoa Cereal

Cereal is so expensive.  Granola.  Puffs with fruit and nuts.  Guess what?  It’s all a giant scam!  Stop buying cereal now and start making your own.  It’s healthier, cheaper and you get to pick quality items – especially if you’re gluten free like me.

Puffed Quinoa DIY Breakfast Cereal

Ingredients: Puffed quinoa, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, chia seeds, flax.

Instructions: Throw whatever is to your liking into the bowl, pour the milk of your choice and THAT’S IT!  No more store bought overpriced fruit & grain for you!

Nutrition TIP: The nutrition of puffed quinoa is great.  A typical serving of puffed quinoa is 50 grams (which is a more than your typical 30 gram cereal serving – you can always eat less) – here is the nutrition for the quinoa:

Values Per 50g
Calories 180 calories
Protein 6.5g
Carbohydrates 32g
Sugar 1.75g
Fat 7.1g
Saturated Fat 0.96g
Fiber 7g
Sodium Trace

Post Gym TIP: I sometimes use this as my after snack.  If I eat it after the gym, I omit the added flax because my naturopath says too much fiber isn’t good in an after gym snack.
