Discover Quinoa

Quinoa is a grain that is akaline & is a slow release food. Being alkaline it will not upset your stomach. Some people eat it for breakfast as a cereal, but there are many other uses: salads, to thicken a stir-fry, an option to rice, potatoes, or pasta. I have used it with tuna, steamed it with a pork roast, & mixed it into a bean salad. It is called a complete protein food & good for weight loss as a little will keep you satisfied for a long while. A little pricey but goes a long way.

    I recently discovered Quinoa and loved it. I found a SPark recipe with cilantro with the quinoa and have made it several times. I did not know that it was a slow release food, so thanks for the news! Everybody should at least try it once or twice. Sure beats traditional pasta, although I like Orzo quite a bit too!
