Quinoa Salad with Flax oil 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a great lunch or side dish. Quinoa is an ancient grain and a good source of protein. Quinoa is a complete protein. It is full of good nutrients and vitamins. This means that while you are eating quinoa you are ensuring that your body is getting good quantities of the right minerals to keep you healthy while you are on a reduced diet.



Ingredients:
1 cup Quinoa
1 ½ cup cold purified water
1 chicken stock cube (or substitute water & cube for homemade stock)
¼ cup sprouts – pea sprouts are my favourite
1 tomato – diced
2 green onions – diced
¼ cucumber – diced
1 tsp fresh basil – chopped
1 tablespoon olive or flax oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


Directions:
Measure and rinse Quinoa, pour into medium sauce pan, add water and stock cube. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes, removed from heat, cover and let cool. Mix oil and vinegar. Transfer Quinoa to glass bowl, mix in vegetables, sprouts and basil. Add oil and vinegar, toss and enjoy.

Recipe
Vegetarian Lentil Stew
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: The Health Benefits of lentils are that they are very rich in protein (about 26%), folic acid, and both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Lentils are also very high in Vitamin C and the B vitamins, and contain eight of the essential amino acids. They also contain many trace minerals. Lentils are one of the highest sources of antioxidants found in winter growing legumes.
The soluble fiber in lentils also helps eliminate cholesterol, since it binds to it, reducing blood cholesterol levels. There is also evidence to prove that lentils can slow the liver's manufacture of cholesterol, which similarly helps to reduce levels in the body.
Lentils for Weight Loss
Because insoluble fiber is indigestible and passes through the body virtually intact, it provides few calories. And since the digestive tract can handle only so much bulk at a time, fiber-rich foods are more filling than other foods, so people tend to eat less.
