Quinoa, Quinoa, Quinoa!

Ever tried quinoa? Don’t worry. I haven’t either, but I’ve heard it’s great! And Diet Blog offers up five good reasons to give quinoa a try. Here are a couple good ones:
3. Quinoa is a good source of protein.
A ½ cup serving of dry quinoa has approximately 11 grams of protein. When cooked, one cup of quinoa is about 254 calories and has almost 9 grams of protein.

4. Quinoa is loaded with minerals.
Quinoa contains potassium, magnesium and manganese. Of these three minerals, magnesium is one of the most common mineral deficiencies in the body. Magnesium helps regulate the absorption of calcium, energy production and aids with muscle contraction.
Now, when you’re ready, give these recipes a whirl: Get Your Quinoa On.
