Health Tip of the Week: Quinoa
Quinoa is a gluten free whole grain that is quick cooking. It comes in an array of colors such as white, red and black. All colors taste the same, the white variety cooks up fluffier while the black and red have a crunchier texture.
Quinoa's nutritional content is very impressive. While it has a decent amount of protein it has the perfect balance of all nine amino acids, essential for human nutrition. This type of protein makes it a complete protein rarely found in plants, more commonly in meats. Quinoa offers a good amount of fiber and iron and only has 111 calories per 1/2 cup!
To sum it up: Quinoa rocks! You definitely need to add this little gem to your pantry!
