A healthy breakfast of oats and quinoa with apricot compote. Quinoa is a slow release carbohydrate and it’s also a complete protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids that we need. Quinoa is actually a seed and not a grain and so is naturally gluten-free. Both quinoa and oats have high levels of fibre too. The apricots are also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron, fibre and are a natural source of antioxidants.
