Switch up your side dish at dinner tonight! If you’re looking for a healthy grain, consider quinoa (KEEN-wah). It’s packed with about 8 grams of protein per cooked cup and it’s gluten free. Whether you’re searching for a healthy side, or living with diabetes, this can be a great substitute to white rice and it’s just as simple to cook! Bonus: it’s also a great choice if you’re conscious of the glycemic index in your food.
How do you cook your quinoa?
