What Makes This Quinoa Salad Recipe Healthy?

Let’s take a second and discuss the benefits of quinoa First off, it’s a great source of fiber, more than most other grains.[1] It’s gluten-free, which is fabulous for everyone, gluten intolerant or not.[2] It’s high in protein, minerals, antioxidants, and even supports good cholesterol.[3, 4] There’s no question about its nutritional value; the only question is, how do you pronounce it? “Kee-noo-wah” is the proper pronunciation, but “Keen-wah” is acceptable, too. Now that you’ve learned about all the benefits of quinoa, you will enjoy this delicious treat even more!
