Quinoa? More like Quin-WOW!
Did you know quinoa has been enjoyed by humans for nearly 4,000 years? These ancient little seeds pack a nutritional (and flavorful!) punch, being high in protein, fiber and essential amino acids while boasting their delicate, nutty flavor. Best of all, quinoa is naturally gluten-free, making it the perfect rice substitute for those eliminating gluten from their diets.
