Now that I know how to pronounce it, I am officially jumping aboard the quinoa (keen-wah) bandwagon. Everywhere I go I am hearing about this super food!
In case you haven't climbed aboard already, here are five reasons why and three recipes to try!

Quinoa is...
  • excellent source of protein
  • low in fat and filling (the perfect diet food)
  • good source of calcium and other vitamins and minerals
  • gluten-free
  • very versatile (use in substitution for rice, stir fries, risotto, couscous, even breakfast cereal)
