FARRAH CHECKING OUT OUR WILDFLOWER GARDENS...


If you could choose only one food, it's this...
Nothing nutritionally comes close to quinoa.



Not everyone can pronounce quinoa (it's keen-wah), and even among those who can, many are asking: is it a seed, a grain, a fruit? But that hasn't stopped it from blasting into mainstream popularity, going far beyond its former status as a hippie food that vegans ate for its high protein count.
People say there are super-foods out there but I have a hard time seeing anything with a nutritional profile like quinoa. It's got everything from fatty essential acids, protein [as much as milk], complex carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Nothing comes close to quinoa."

NASA is considering using quinoa for its in-space program.If someone put a gun to your head and said, 'You can only eat one food for the rest of your life,' and you had one second to choose a food that would keep you strong and healthy for the rest of your life, you'd be miles ahead of anybody if you picked quinoa."

Look, stop eating your oatmeal. Stop eating your yogourt. Just eat quinoa. It will impact your fitness. It's really easy. It's as easy to cook as oatmeal.

  3. Hello bryn
    I haven't heard of quinoa over here. It is possible that it goes under a different name and it is also possible that I am just not on the ball. Either way, I will check it out. Thanks for the information. God bless you bryn.
