Everyone’s talking these days about ‘superfood’. There are dozens of superfoods being discovered or rediscovered. And I can say with a reasonable degree of medical certainty that the majority of them are crap. Food you eat in small quantities from time to time won’t influence your overall health that much.
But there is one food that truly will make you stronger and healthier if you eat it every day, day in and day out. Quinoa is a pseudograin that substitutes for rice, or even bread and pasta if you want it to. Quinoa has twice the protein of brown rice ounce for ounce, and is full of fiber and other good things.
Quinoa comes from South America where the aboriginal indians used to call it, ‘the mother grain’. It is the best source of plant protein. All 8 essential amino acids are in there in proper proportion. Quinoa is the egg of the plant kingdom.
So my advice to you, gentle reader, is to stop eating starchy grain like rice, bread, and glutenous pasta and replace all that starch with quinoa and pasta or bread made from quinoa flour. Given enough time, you will see results in your overall health. And that’s a good thing.
