Are you a vegetarian, gluten sensitive, or just plain carb obsessed? Then quinoa is the perfect super food for you! This ancient grain is native to the Incas and was praised as “The Mother of All Grains.” Unlike most plant based foods, quinoa is a complete protein source with 6g protein per 1/4C serving, dried. Nutritional benefits don’t stop there; it is also a great source of fiber, magnesium, and iron.
It’s been a busy spring, so you might have missed it, but Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. has come out with a brand new diet book.
