Wake Up with Quinoa

, Wake Up with QuinoaOn a chilly morning when you want a special treat, bypass the fatty pastries and warm up with our Health-e-Recipe for Creamy Quinoa Oat Porridge.

It’s a delicious way to eat quinoa, a whole grain that supplies a hefty amount of protein (8 grams) and fiber (5 grams) per cup cooked. This recipe mixes it with oats to smooth out the texture and sweetens it with apple, almond milk, cider, cinnamon and maple syrup.

All plant foods contain dietary fiber, found by AICR’s report and its continuous updates to show strong evidence of colon cancer prevention. Fiber also causes gut bacteria to produce a substance called butyrate, which may help prevent cancer in the digestive tract. Whole grains like quinoa and oats are filling and more slowly digested than refined carbs (sugar and refined grains), so your energy lasts longer and blood sugar stays on an even keel.

Flaxseed is another potential cancer-fighting food, with possibly able to ward off breast cancer. Here, it puts a finishing touch on what is already a super-healthy breakfast. (Chopped walnuts are a cancer-fighting substitute if you can’t find ground flaxseed.)
