Maple, Pecan & Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Here is a healthy breakfast and all you need to get your day started. Quinoa is gluten-free–a great wheat-free alternative. Plus, it’s high in protein and is a complex carbohydrate, which promotes weight management. Another healthy recipe from Danette May’s cookbook. Also read Why Quinoa is Good for You.
