They say if you can’t pronounce it, then you shouldn’t eat it.

That was before we discovered “Quinoa”

Pronounced “keen-wah”

Quinoa is deemed a”super food”

It is high in protein & gluten free

Here are my personal top 5 ways on how to prepare it.

1. In place of all Rice – whenever you have a dish call for rice, replace it with quinoa. It will instantly make the dish healthier.

2. Breakfast quinoa -

3. Use cooked quinoa in place of breadcrumbs.

4. Shakeology / Quinoa protein bars – Talk about SuperFOOD. Take the healthiest meal of the day Shakeology  and combine it with quinoa – you have a SuperFOOD explosion!

I modified the below recipe from No Meat Athlete.

  • 3/4 cup dry quinoa, or about 2 cups cooked
  • 1/2 cup dates, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Shakeology
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup stir-ins like dry fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, or vegan chocolate chips. (I went for half chocolate chips and half coconut)

5. Enjoy it all on it’s own :)
