FYI, when I compared nutritional values of plain oatmeal (old fashioned or quick oats) and quinoa, they were almost identical in terms of fat and protein when you compare equal weights - when I compared 100 grams to 100 grams, there was a 1g difference in protein and fat -

I like to eat oatmeal with sugar free maple syrup (you can obviously sub another sweetener that's less processed and chemically), lots of cinnamon, and walnuts (for additional protein and a bit of fat)... it's incredibly filling {also good with a couple spoons of pumpkin, a bit of salt, and some nutmeg}

You can make breakfast porridge with any whole grains you choose - I often switch between oatmeal, quinoa, and pearl barley...
