Quinoa is a member of the herbaceous plant family (no it’s not a grain) and it’s hard to believe just how much goodness it contains! Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and makes the perfect addition to any diet. Here’s why.
Quinoa has become highly popular, not just for its unique, subtle and slightly nutty flavor, but also for its many health benefits. This apart from being gluten-free and an excellent source of protein, quinoa is ideal for anyone wishing to up their iron intake, since it contains non-heme iron that is especially well-absorbed when combined with vitamin C. So eating a bit of orange, kiwi or pomegranate will make your quinoa even better for you! How about you prepare pancakes with quinoa flour and serve it with citrus fruits? Deliciousness guaranteed!
Finally, (and just in case you’re not yet totally convinced!) quinoa is high in fiber, making it good for the whole family in terms of preventing cardiovascular disease and regulating digestion. So whether you cook it in non-stick pots and pans or even a rice cooker, quinoa has everything going for it, whether you prefer it hot or cold!
