Increase metabolism and curb appetite by eating more grains? Hell yeah! There's a reason quinoa (keen-wah) is on everybody's plate right now. It's high in protein, gluten-free, and one of the few plant foods that contain all 9 essential amino acids. High in fiber, magnesium, B-vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and vitamin E, it also contains flavonoids, plant antioxidants that have been proven to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and anti-depressant beneficial effects. With its low glycemic index, quinoa is much better at reducing blood sugar, insulin and triglyceride levels than rice or gluten-free breads and pastas.
With its mild, nutty flavour and satisfying crunch, it's so easy to incorporate into your diet. Boil in water or broth, leave 15 minutes, and eat with your favorite food!
The Incas actually hailed quinoa as the “mother of all grains” and believed it to be sacred back in the day. Now we know why!
All natural, organic, non-GMO, vegan, and gluten free.
