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.
