Here are the nutrition facts. For every gram consumed, your body takes in 1 gram of protein per 1 gram of carb. That gives blood sugar a chance to regulate as your body breaks this stuff down.
It's totally hypoallergenic. It's actually just the bud of a plant. So there isn't much processing that needs to be done to it once it's harvested. There aren't any additives either. This makes the person suffering from sensitive digestive issues, able to consume it without problems. It doesn't cause inflammation like rice or millet either. It's easy on the gut.
It can be ground and made into a powder to add to flour mixes. It can be used in place of oats in recipes, or even used as an oatmeal. It's versatile if you haven't caught my drift.
How do you cook it? Just like rice, 2 cups of liquid to 1 cup of Quinoa. Let it boil for about 20 minuets until all liquid is cooked out. I personally cook mine in chicken stock. But you can use water and get the same result. What do I eat it with? Use it like rice in any recipe. Add it to soups, use it as a side, or pour meat and juices over it. Get creative.
Lastly, where do I but this? Costco, if you've been following me for any amount of time you know that I love Costco. The cost equals out to be less than $2 a pound. Most health food stores or regular grocery stores carry it, but for double the price. Buy bulk and save! Enjoy.
