Quinoa is a dieter’s dream. High in protein and fiber, it’s filling and satisfying. Even if you’re not dieting after the holidays, but like to eat light and healthy, quinoa should be on your shopping list.
It’s such a versatile grain that’s cheap and quick to cook. I add it to soups, use it as a side dish, and make a salads out of it. I’ll often make extra and freeze it for a quick meal. Convinced yet?
