Superfood Quinoa Jars To-Go

Series: Elizabeth Eats Series 3: Healthy Make-Ahead Meals & Hacks | Episode: 6 | Runtime: 05m 46s | Release date: 2017

This segment features: Elizabeth Rider.

It's time to mix up your breakfast game! This sweet superfood combo of strawberries, acai, and coconut turn plain old quinoa into a delightful and unexpected meal. Store it in jars in the refrigerator for a grab-and-go breakfast or lunch all week long.

Serves: 4, easily scaled for more

Why It's Good For You:

Quinoa is one of the most versatile healthy ingredients on the planet. A seed that cooks like a grain, quinoa is naturally gluten-free and is packed with plant-based protein, fiber, and a good carbohydrate. Acai is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet, and even contains a small amount of essential fatty acids. The coconut milk adds more healthy fats, while the chia and hemp seeds round out the dish with even more protein, fiber, and texture. This low-sugar, nutrition-packed meal will keep you full and is great for your overall digestion and gut health.

Hello Jennifer, I am sorry, we do not have the nutrition information for this recipe. Our main focus is on nutrients and the use of whole foods for our body rather than analyzing recipes in a nutritional breakdown :)

Yum! Love the tip to add a bit of salt when using honey to bring out the sweetness! <3
