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.

Wellness Tip
Interval training
Interval training mimics the behavior of our hunting-gathering ancestors better than continuous exercise that maintains a constant pace for 20-40 minutes. Interval training can be defined as short, high-intensity exercise periods alternated with periods of rest. Periods of high and low intensity are repeated several times to form a complete workout.
