Quinoa; why you should be eating it

This is my favorite way to eat Quinoa; Near East Roasted Red Pepper & Basil blend, so good!

Quinoa, (pronounced keen-wah), you’ve probably heard about this very special grain by now but aren’t aware of all the benefits and why you should be eating it.  Since I eat quinoa every week and absolutely love it, I thought I’d give you all of the facts.

  1. Quinoa contains almost twice as much fiber as most any other grain.
  2. Quinoa is considered a grain but it is actually a seed.
  3. Quinoa gives you energy & increases metabolism, contains high levels of Riboflavin.
  4. Quinoa is gluten-free.
  5. Quinoa is a complete protein, containing all necessary amino acids.
  6. Quinoa is a good source of iron, calcium & magnesium.
  7. Quinoa is delicious!  A perfect healthy substitute for rice or pasta.
