I’ve struggled in the past with consistently consuming all nine amino acids and this has had negative effects on my health over the years. Implementing quinoa into my diet and multiple recipes ended up being the savior that I hadn’t anticipated as I could consume all nine amino acids without much work. This recipe specifically calls for quinoa flakes, which are one of the main gluten-free alternatives to wheat grains that I use.
Here are some reasons why you should be including quinoa in your diet:
- Quinoa is high in fiber , which can help with digestive issues and may help lower risk of intestinal cancer.
- Quinoa is considered a superfood and for good reason, as it provides all nine amino acids.
- Quinoa is a whole grain and whole grains have been proven to help lower the risk of diabetes and cancer.
- Quinoa is a great source of antioxidants, which can aid in decreasing the risk of heart disease.
