One of the great grains for the body, Quinoa!

A single cup of cooked quinoa has 8 grams of protein, which is more that most grains. In addition Quinoa has a high amount of iron that raises the hematocrit. This helps people who eat it fight senility since it delivers more oxygen to the brain.
It has a very low glycemic index so it is a good choice for diabetics and it gives you a nutty flavor that works well for green, leafy salads, soup recipes and main dishes.

Adding Garlic and veggies makes this a simple dish that is packed with countless benefits!
