I have a morning ritual of reading food blogs while eating breakfast. A lot of the articles include the latest food trends, and for the past couple years quinoa has been popping up. A lot of people have asked me what it is and I wasn’t even really sure! The texture is similar to that of couscous, but couscous is a pasta. A little research revealed quinoa is apparently a seed. Nonetheless I find it to be DELISH. I like the kind that is pre-washed because it has a less “crunchy” texture and you don’t have to soak it in water as long. Quinoa is great because it is so versatile – there are so many recipes out there using it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s a yummy gluten free alternative, plus is a lot easier to find in the grocery store ever since it started trending a couple years ago.
