GET READY TO GO CUCKOO FOR QUINOA!

December 7, 2014

 

As a young kid every morning I used to go “Cuckoo for Coca Puffs!” However, as years have passed my mindset towards fueling my body and mind to be at one with healthy food has diminished my taste for high fructose sugary cereals. If your one that craves high sugary cereals, loaded pastries, or breakfasts loaded with high saturated fats, surprisingly Quinoa is a great breakfast food to start your day.  Pair it with an omelets, throw it in smoothie bowl, or put in a recipe to create a healthy morning muffin the options are endless! Here are some reasons why you need to start going Cuckoo for Quinoa!

  • Quinoa is a Queen of grains because it’s packed with an ideal protein and carbohydrate that contain nine essential amino acids.

  • Since Quinoa is so high in fiber and protein it can make you feel fuller for longer periods of time, which make it an ideal weight loss food

  • Quinoa is loaded with magnesium, calcium, iron, folate, and vitamin B6 and phosphorous all which are an impressive combination that reduces the risk of heart disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity.

  • Easy to digest and is gluten free

  • Perfect replacement for white carbohydrates preferably white rice

  • Add it to any meal, recipe, or eat as a snack

  • Easy to prepare

  • Keep  blood sugars steady and balanced which aid in maintaing healthy weight and improve cholesterol

  • Quinoa contains healthy carbohydrates in each serving, some of which comes from fiber. One cup of cooked quinoa contains 30 grams of carbohydrate, 3 grams of fat, 3 grams of dietary fiber and 5.5 grams of protein
