Any of you guys regularly eat Quinoa? I've eaten it for years and find it a really helathy protein/carb source with a very good amino profile. Yet I never hear about any BB eating it!

Its in my lunchbox waiting for me to eat it infact...lol I eat it every week, great replacement for rice or other carbs. Contains all 9 essential amino acids, and its veratile, its really good cold with berries in it too.

I have read about it on another site. Been looking to see where to find it local.

I usually work in two servings per day.

I make a week's worth of turkey/quinoa chili; and typically have some sort of chicken breast + quinoa; salmon + quinoa, or turkey//quinoa meatloaf.

I love it. I use it instead of rice for many things. Since its preparation is identical to white rice, it's a natural replacement for a lot of things Stuffed peppers, risotto, quinoa (rice) pudding. As was mentioned above, it's awesome cold with some fruit and honey too. Very versatile and nutritionally excellent.
