Tired of Oatmeal for Breakfast? Then You Have To Try Quinoa Flakes from Ancient Harvest. The Best Part: You Can Prepare Them In Less Than 90 Seconds!
There’s a reason ”breakfast” has the word “fast” in it: Most people need something quick and nutritious to eat before they head off to the gym, office or dropping the kids at daycare.
Outside of weekends — when you have time for more elaborate breakfasts — the first meal of the day needs to be quick, nutritious and balanced.
Oatmeal is always a good choice, but over time, even oat lovers can get bored with it. Plus, oatmeal isn’t a complete protein, so you typically have to combine it with another source of protein — like whey, eggs or skim milk — to get all of your aminos in the morning.
Not only do Ancient Harvest’s Quinoa Flakes cook up in the time it takes you to gather your company ID badge, wallet or purse and Blackberry, but they are one of the best tasting, quick sources of complete protein available in a grain.
What Is Quinoa?
Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wah) is an ancient “grain” that dates back over 5,000 years to the Incans.
