After a long and tiring weekend, with many late nights spent working on an assignment for school, it has been submitted and I’m awaiting a grade from my professor. I was extremely tired this morning and found myself over sleeping, thus the lateness of my post today.
We begin discussing macronutrients this week, so the nutrient for this week is CARBOHYDRATES. Stay tuned, later today, for my article: ULTIMATE GUIDE TO NUTRIENTS: CARBOHYDRATES. All recipes this week will be based on this important and often vilified nutrient.
Today, I am focusing on my all time favorite whole “grain”, quinoa. It isn’t actually a grain at all but a seed. And a powerful little seed it is. It is considered a complete protein, because it contains all essential amino acids required to make it a protein. This makes it a great alternative for vegans. I found a great article from Cookie and Kate, discussing quinoa, how to properly cook it AND 10 recipes. ENJOY!!
Here’s a look at some of the delicious recipes! YUM!
