If you want more nutrition and healthier meals, check out these amazing and easy to make 10 quinoa recipes that will make you forget all about rice.

Quinoa is delicious and so nutritious. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and contains iron, B-vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin E, and fiber. It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids.

Concerned about arsenic in rice? Lack of nutrients? Ditch the empty source of calories and start cooking with quinoa! You will get almost double the fiber and phosphorus, four times more iron, and five times more potassium.

Quinoa contains also a much higher and healthier number of carbs than rice. This super seed has almost 6 times the protein! Quinoa has a lower glycemic index compared to rice, and adds all essential amino acids to your diet.

Are you convinced yet? If not, let me tell you about phytates. They are anti-nutrients contained in rice, and they make it difficult for our body to absorb nutrients from both the rice you are eating and the other foods accompanying it.

What are you waiting for? Try these 10 Quinoa Recipes That Will Make You Forget All About Rice and start making healthier choices. Make sure you buy a good quality organic quinoa.  I like C & F Premium Organic Quinoa because it is already pre-washed and ready to cook. It is very important to rinse the quinoa before cooking.
