Quinoa is a delicious source of protein and fiber. Quinoa is a whole grain seed that is prepared similar to rice or barley. It takes less time to cook than most other whole grains, which is a plus. Quinoa is also gluten-free and cholesterol free. A very healthy whole grain that is an ancient grain, a grain that has been around for centuries and is still cultivated the same, as it was years and years ago.
Personally, I love to make a side of Quinoa for dinner or lunch. I’ll serve it with grilled salmon, chicken, pork chops and steak. For lunches, I especially like the Q Cup™ Organic Quinoa from Now Foods. I just add water and in 5 minutes, I have a healthy 2 oz. serving of Quinoa. This is perfect for when I’m at work!
