Friendly Competition: Quinoa
Our bellies are still full of grilled cheese and Amy at the Grody Gourmet and I are ready to cook healthy. We've chosen that supergrain known as quinoa as the featured ingredient in this week's recipe challenge.
I did a little research on quinoa and found that not only is it a complete protein (great for vegans), but it is high in antioxidants, can help people who suffer from migraines, can improve cardiovascular health--and pretty much everything else. I wouldn't be surprised if tomorrow they announced it could reverse male pattern baldness. Why are we not eating this every day?
As always, we'll post our favorite recipes on Friday, and we'd love to have you join in. If you have a great quinoa recipe, let me know and I'll post a link to your blog as well.
