Lately I’ve been receiving a lot of hits regarding Quinoa. Quinoa is a brilliant food and when you talk about whole grains, Quinoa actually fulfills the standard to be considered a whole food. Although technically Quinoa is not a whole grain but a seed, it serves to take the place of grains on your plate. It can be sprouted and is great for people who have gluten allergies. This recommendation came from one of our blog followers here in Bangkok and I though it was awesome. Keep sending  these delicious discoveries so that others can enjoy these wonderful foods. Check out the recipe.
