Quinoa isn’t truly a grain, at least from some of what I am reading it is closer to a relative of the leafy green family of swiss chard and spinach. Not sure what is correct here when classifying it, but I can tell you it is wonderful for you! It is full of magnesium and riboflavin (b12) and great for people with migraines, vegetarians for a strong source of protein and all nine essential amino acids.
So, what do we do with it? That is if we are still eating it… YES WE ARE, it is good for you!
I prefer to cook it and chill it, serving it as a salad. Let’s try it for breakfast. You want to cook it with less water so that it gets a bit thicker, add a 1/4 cup of oat bran for extra nutrients and fiber, 1tsp of ground flax seeds. Just about done, add a splash of milk and some fresh or frozen berries. I prefer a blueberries and a teaspoon of honey!
That’s it.. breakfast!
