Quinoa has become so popular these days because of its health benefits. Not only is it high in protein, but it’s a great source of vitamin B6, folate, iron, and zinc. One cup of cooked quinoa has 180 calories, 2 grams fiber and 7 grams protein.
Now that quinoa is so popular and readily available, you can find it in all different varieties – white, red, and tri-color. I like to switch things up and use different varieties depending on my mood.
