Why It's So Good For You

Protein, healthy fats and slow-releasing carbohydrates make for an excellent breakfast, sustaining you through your morning with energy and nutrients to support your daily activities. Quinoa is a slow-releasing carbohydrate, so it won't spike your blood sugars, but it's also a complete protein source - making it a great vegan or vegetarian option to ensure you're getting all the essential amino acids to repair and build proteins in the body. Avocado is also an incredible source of vitamins, fiber and healthy fats, which will help to keep you full and your skin glowing!
