Pinterest Tuesday

Pinterest = happiness (or crazed pinning obsession?)

Lately I've been wanting to incorporate quinoa in my meals, perhaps a pregnancy craving? All I know for sure is that this amino acid-rich seed improved the stamina of the Inca warriors. It is very high in complete protein. When you read complete protein, you should be jumping up and down because it means it includes all NINE essential amino acids.

What are the health benefits of quinoa? It aids with tissue growth and repair, reduces migraine headaches, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It also helps prevent cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, childhood asthma, gallstone and many other things. Bottom line, this stuff is good for you.
