I love quinoa when it’s cooked right and mixed into a flavorful meal! Quinoa is the seed of a plant related to the beet, chard and spinach plants. The part of the plant that is edible is its seeds. Quinoa has excellent reserves of protein and unlike other grains, is not missing the amino acid lysine, so the protein is more complete. Plus it has high amounts of vitamin E good for healthy skin and hair.
