New Year's Resolution: EAT QUINOA: THE MOTHER OF ALL GRAINS
Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is one of those "ancient" grains, but this one is native to South America. Quinoa was called the "mother of all grains" by the Incas, who considered it a sacred food. Quinoa is the seed of the goosefoot plant, a plant related to spinach, with leaves that resemble ... you guessed it, the foot of a goose! Loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, this whole grain is incredibly nutritious.
