Skip the whole-grain toast and add some leftover quinoa to your omelet instead. The ancient grain adds an unexpected flavor and texture twist to the egg dish, a welcome change if you eat omelets regularly. Plus, quinoa is higher in protein than any other grain and packs plenty of heart-healthy, unsaturated fats and satiating fiber.
EAT THIS! TIP
Top nearly cooked eggs with a few spoonfuls of cooked quinoa, spinach, tomatoes, onions (a veggie that torches stored fat) and a sprinkle of cumin. Once the mixture has cooked through, fold into an omelet and enjoy!
