What are the Health Benefits of Quinoa?

Quinoa is a gluten-free, grain-like seed that is originally from South America. Quinoa is an excellent source of iron and is popular because of it’s high levels of protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber. For example, half a cup of quinoa contains as much fiber as half a cup of cooked brown rice or a slice of whole wheat bread.

Quinoa can be use in salads, soups, or stews and can replace rice or pasta as a side. You can find quinoa in the natural food section at the supermarket or online. My favorite brand of quinoa is TruRoots Organic Whole Grain Quinoa.

    I have never had quinoa in a breakfast bowl before, only in salads. This was delicious and different way of eating quinoa. The vanilla and blueberries and cinnamon spice were wonderful.

    1. Hi Melanie, I am glad you liked the recipe! It’s always cool to find different ways of eating healthy ingredients, right? 🙂
