Spanish sardines, scrambled egg, quinoa with turmeric, sprinkled with cayenne pepper.
I only learned about Quinoa (keen-wah) this holiday season. Bought the seeds & tried it out. It really tastes like rice, but the look & texture will take a bit of getting used to. Here are some health benefits I read from bodyecology.com:
1. Complete protein: it has 9 essential amino acids that are required by the body as building blocks for muscles.
2. It has Magnesium, which promotes normal blood pressure & regulates blood sugar levels, supports healthy immune system & keeps bones strong.
3. High in Fiber, which helps clean colon
4. Good source of Manganese & copper that act as antioxidants to get rid of dangerous cancer & disease-causing substances.
Also, in its whole grain form, may be effective in preventing & treating artherosclerosis, breast cancer & diabetes.
After reading this, I’m kinda drawn to it. Looks like I’m gonna be eating more of quinoa this year!
