Benefits of Quinoa and Why It Really Is Special

Benefits of Quinoa and Why It Really Is Special

Quinoa is such a great option for many reasons! Not only is it gluten free it is high in protein, along with being a complete plant based protein, which means it has all 9 essential amino acids, this is especially good if you are vegan, vegetarian or reducing your meat in take.  It is high in nutrients like iron, manganese, magnesium, zinc and is high in fibre.

Don't let quinoa intimidate you if you have never tried it, you really can cook it and use it just like rice. It has a nice nutty flavour and adds a different depth of flavour to rice. Check out the video to learn more
