Quinoa is billed as a grain, but it’s actually a high-protein, gluten-free, super-nutritious seed that is as tasty and versatile as it is healthy. In its uncooked state, it takes the form of small off-white disks. It swells when it’s cooked and has a lightly nutty, slightly earthy flavor - very mild but distinct, and much more interesting than rice or couscous. Easy to cook as rice, same method to cook as rice.
But check this out.
For every cup of this healthy alternative to rice you get- 700 calories, 10g good fats, 10g fibre, 117g high quality carbs, and best of all, 24g of protein!!! The protein in in simple form, easily absorbed by the body.
Im excited lol. Im making a big bowl of this with chicken, egg whites, onion and veggies mixed through. The ultimate bulking meal.
