Cereal is so expensive. Granola. Puffs with fruit and nuts. Guess what? It’s all a giant scam! Stop buying cereal now and start making your own. It’s healthier, cheaper and you get to pick quality items – especially if you’re gluten free like me.
Ingredients: Puffed quinoa, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, chia seeds, flax.
Instructions: Throw whatever is to your liking into the bowl, pour the milk of your choice and THAT’S IT! No more store bought overpriced fruit & grain for you!
Nutrition TIP: The nutrition of puffed quinoa is great. A typical serving of puffed quinoa is 50 grams (which is a more than your typical 30 gram cereal serving – you can always eat less) – here is the nutrition for the quinoa:
Post Gym TIP: I sometimes use this as my after snack. If I eat it after the gym, I omit the added flax because my naturopath says too much fiber isn’t good in an after gym snack.
