Quinoa Helps Weight Loss...Gluten Free Too!

This Sparked Me!

Quinoa is loaded with energy vitamins, high in fiber and protein and Quinoa is relatively low on the glycemic index and is a complex carb, It should help with having fewer cravings for sugary foods.

Substitute quinoa in dishes that call for pasta or rice and it can be eaten as a cereal. Mix it with strawberries and yogurt for a filling desert. It is also gluten free.
