Do you wonder what to do with quinoa? It's full of protein and so good for you! I'm excited about this FREE cookbook from Amazon. It says you can get a free kindle copy with a paperback purchase, but you can also just get the kindle version for free. I tried it out and got mine this morning. :0)
What Makes Quinoa Such A Powerhouse?
The biggest thing for many people is that quinoa is gluten free. That is a blessing for people with celiac or those with gluten sensitivities. It is high in protein which is great for vegetarians and vegans who need that additional protein in their diet.
When it comes to weight loss quinoa is like your best friend. It is a great complex carb that is low on the glycemic index which means it burns slow without the energy highs and lows. It only has 172 calories per ¼ cup of uncooked seeds. Being it so filling you eat a lot less compared to other grains.
It is great for migraine sufferers as it contains riboflavin which improves the energy metabolism within the brain and muscle cells. With the anti-inflammatory properties, it fits great with clean eating diets, anti-inflammatory diets and even alkaline diets.
Besides all that it tastes great added to almost anything you can think of. Add it to salads, stir fry’s, eat it for breakfast with dried fruit and even as meat free burgers. The list is endless so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Inside you will find some great recipes like:
- Quinoa Cinnamon Breakfast Bake
- Artichoke Quinoa Salad
- Quinoa Crispy Pizza
- Peanut Butter and Chocolate Quinoa Bake

This is what a reviewer had to say about it: "I know that quiona is a superfood but I really don't have enough recipes to prepare it. Due to that I downloaded this book and it really helped me to improve my diet and to eat better. It has plenty of recipes for preparation of quiona, and my favorite are: apple spiced quinoa parfait, quinoa onion shrimp mix, and thai style quinoa."
