Hurray for Protein!!!
Quinoa is a gluten free superfood grain that holds numerus health benefits. Quinoa has an abundance of nutrients, including folate, magnesium, zinc, and iron, as well as rich in fibre and protein. Protein is an essential macronutrient important for muscle growth, repairing cells, brain function, and overall health. One major health benefit of quinoa is that it’s high in complete plant protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids that our body’s cannot produce on their own.
