Print Friendly 

Description:
Rich, sweet, high protein and delicious!
Quinoa originated in the Andean region of South America, where it has been an important food for 6,000 years. The Incas, who held the crop to be sacred,referred to quinoa as chisaya mama or mother of all grains, and it was the Inca emperor who would traditionally sow the first seeds of the season using 'golden implements'. Quinoa has a light, fluffy texture when cooked, and its mild, slightly nutty flavor makes it an alternative to white rice or couscous.
The health benefits of eating almonds in moderation promotes lower cholesterol levels, prevents heart disease and can help with weight loss.

Wellness Tip
Granola Bars
Many granola bars might not be as healthy as they seem. According to registered dietitians, some contain large amounts of sugar, saturated fats and calories. Look for bars that have no added sugars and are high in fiber. For a quick and easy alternative, fill a small sandwich baggie with whole grain cereal, mixed with nuts and dried fruit. While you still have to watch calories, the fiber and nutrient content of this snack is a sure bet.
