Chances are, if I’m making Quinoa Egg Bowls in my house, it means a hard workout is about to go down. A lot of people ask me what I eat before long runs and/or races. This is it, folks, right here! No smoothies for this girl. I personally like to eat my greens for breakfast.
Why do I love Quinoa Egg Bowls so much? For one, the quinoa, chickpeas, and egg give a protein packed boost that keeps me going through my whole workout, but it is light enough that it doesn’t weigh me down. Plus, it is simple and quick to make, but packed with flavor.
Make sure not to over-cook those eggs! The best part of this breakfast is breaking the yolk with your fork and letting it run down into the quinoa and chickpeas. Top with salsa and queso fresco for a light, delicious garnish.
This recipe makes enough for two. Although, if you are feeling very hungry, you could eat the entire thing yourself (I admit, been there, done that!).
