so lately i have been getting into quinoa. i just love its versatility to accommodate different flavors as well as pair with pretty much any protein. my favorite is a quinoa salad with a white wine vinegarette with cuccumbers and tomatoes. add some dill for garnish and flavor and you have a nice side dish. plus it is very nutritional and healthy for you. it is called a super grain because it is the only grain that has complete proteins. this means that it has all of the essential amino acids one needs to be healthy. most grains and vegetables have incomplete proteins where some of the essential amino acids are lacking or in such insignificant amounts. have you guys had quinoa? if not you should try it. it is very easy to make. it is prepared very similar to rice. give it a go and let us know how you like it.
