I been thinking about different ways to include more plant based protein rich foods in my everyday life! Quinoa may sound super complicated and expensive but it really isn’t and I really recommend atleast giving it a try. 😉

So what foods to I eat on regular bacis? Porridge (and chocolate!). I ended up with chocolate quinoa porridge! Filling, wholefood, fruit sweetened, rich in protein, you know the drill!
