Quinoa makes a good change to oats for your breakfast and as they can be prepared in advance and eaten cold, they are a super fast breakfast option too. Full of complete protein, 1 cup of cooked quinoa will provide you with around 9g of protein which can be boosted by adding a handful of sunflower, pumpkin and chia seeds too. Quinoa is a little plain so mix it with some creamy yoghurt (which again will add to your protein depending on which yoghurt you choose), then top with what fruit you have available.
