QUINOA!

A lot of people get confused between quinoa and couscous! To go quickly about that point, couscous is more like a pasta which contains wheat, while quinoa is like a whole grain but wheat- free which makes it healthier for you as it has more vitamins and minerals!

Here I will focus on Quinoa which is the healthiest vegetarian food option!! :D

Quinoa is a complete protein, which means that it contains all the 9 essential amino acids for our nutritional needs. Complete proteins make quinoa an excellent food for vegetarians or even for anyone  looking for a healthy protein source.

Quinoa is very high in iron and calcium, and is a good source of manganese, magnesium, zinc and potassium, as well as fiber (aids in digestion and prevents constipation problems)

Nutritional updates!! The Mayo Clinic promotes the use of alternate protein sources such as quinoa  since people who eat mainly plant-based diets generally have lower blood  cholesterol and blood pressure levels along with a reduced risk of heart  disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes!!

As I said before quinoa is naturally wheat-free which makes it gluten-free (unlike pasta), excellent food choice for celiac patients people who are intolerant to wheat and following a gluten-free diet!

One cup of cooked quinoa provides 3.4 grams of fat, 5 grams of fiber and 222 calories!
