Quinoa porridge - higher carb than I thought!
I thought I'd cracked it when finding an alternative to my beloved porridge (oatmeal) for breakfast on cold mornings - quinoa seemed to be a great alternative - high in protein and a seed not a grain, but when I put my recipe into myFitnesspal, a serving came out as 34g carbs! Eeek! That doesn't give me much to play with when trying to stay between 50 and 100g!
Have I got it wrong? Or is quinoa really that carby?
I like to have a warm breakfast when it's cold but don't always have time for eggs etc, I'd cooked up a big batch of quinoa porridge so I could heat up a little every day, but hadn't realised what a chunk it would take out of my carb allowance!
Any suggestions for something better would be gratefully received! Thanks.
