When you take on a whole food plant strong diet one of the secrets to success is having some whole starches ready and available in your fridge. Starches like sweet potatoes, potatoes, rice, oats, and quinoa can all be the base for any meal of the day.
Starches are satiating! They are rich in fibre! Carbohydrates are your body’s preferred source of fuel. And starches are versatile. Please don’t be afraid of including WHOLE FOOD starches in your day.
This was a super yummy and easy breakfast bowl to throw together. And of course, rich in nutrients.
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 pear, diced
1 cup blueberries
1/2 banana, sliced
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 kale leaf, finely chopped
2 mint leaves, finely chopped (optional)
Toss everything together well in a large bowl. The almond butter requires some good tossing around. Then pour into a smaller serving bowl. Dig in and enjoy!
