Start your day off right with a delicious Super Food – quinoa.
Quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat and it contains all nine essential amino acids our bodies need. Plus, it also contains iron, lysine, magnesium, B2, manganese, and twice the amount of fiber as other grains – all of which will reduce cholesterol levels, increase brain function, strengthen your teeth and bones.
So basically, it’s safe to say that this food is a must have in your diet – especially breakfast.

Not sure why, but I react to quinoa just as I do gluten. Just a word if caution to anyone who hasn’t tried it yet.
I was worried about that. I react to oatmeal also just like I do to gluten. I want to give this a try but am unsure.
