Technically, quinoa is a seed of a leafy plant similar to Swiss chard, but looks like a grain and was once considered ”gold of the Incas”. It is gluten-free, complete in protein (all essential amino acids), high in fiber, magnesium, vitamin E, calcium, iron, zinc, B vitamins and abundant in cancer-fighting antioxidants. It takes less time to cook quinoa than brown rice, and only contains 15 calories from fat in 1 serving!! Not to mention that it is so filling, so you’ll eat less of it and thus it falls in the “weight loss food” category…… your NEW BEST FRIEND!
