Protein-Rich Breakfast: Spinach Quinoa Scramble

If two scrambled eggs always leave you wanting more, bulk up your breakfast with two healthy ingredients: spinach and quinoa. This satisfying, vitamin-packed dish offers a whopping 19.6 grams of protein per serving. It's delicious enough to savor as a weekend treat, but it also takes less than 10 minutes to cook, making it an option for a hearty before-work breakfast.

Feel free to grate one teaspoon grated Parmesan on the dish as garnish.

The calorie content for this is WAY off. You used calorie counter to add uncooked quinoa and not cooked. 1/4 cup uncooked is way higher in calories than 1/4 of cooked. Huge difference.
