Quinoa is actually a seed and comes with all the health benefits that seeds come with. These include essential fats and quality protein. Both of these are vital for steady blood sugar levels, maintining muscle definition and to aid fat loss.
Quinoa can found in the 'free-from' aisle in the supermarket or in health food shops. It is also easy to cook. I cook a batch and leave this in the fridge to add to meals as i go through the week.
Get some in your cupboard and feel the benefit.
