Healthy Choices- Quinoa



The next healthy choice I am going to talk about is quinoa. 



 I like quinoa because it is so versatile. It can be cooked the same as you would cook rice and topped with some butter and salt and served as a side. Or it can be mixed in as a filler to meatballs. I cook it first and then mix it into my meatball mixture. It is a great way to get the health benefit of quinoa and it is a great filler to stretch your ground beef.
 Here's a few highlights of quinoa:
-great source of protein
-fiber
- lots of minerals
-gluten free
-antioxidants
