I was introduced to Quinoa about a year ago and fell in love with it right away. Not only does Quinoa taste great but it also has amazing nutritional value. It is a great source of protein as well as vitamins and minerals. It contains all eight amino acids. It is excellent for those who have gluten and wheat intolerance and digestive disorders.

It helps to build muscle, promotes weight loss and stabilizes blood sugar.

Now I have been using exact same recipe since I discovered this wonderful food and was starting to get a little tired of it. I was itching for new Quinoa recipes and cooking ideas. To my delight the past week I came across the cookbook Quinoa 365, an entire cookbook full of Quinoa recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood by Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming is a beautiful cookbook. It has a lot of simple, easy to make Quinoa recipes. I have tried a few of the recipes this past week and they’ve all turned out great.

Today I made the Chocolate quinoa Crepes with Banana and my eight year old loved it.

She is a bit of a picky eater so that says a lot.

If you haven’t heard about Quinoa before I would encourage you to visit the Quinoa 365 website to learn more about this ancient superfood.  You’ll find free recipes you can try.  I plan to use many of the recipes from Quinoa 365 and will report back here. I love Quinoa and am so grateful to have found this recipe book. Hope you’ll try quinoa and enjoy it as much as I do.

Please come back and share your experience with quinoa. Leave me your comments and questions below.

Many blessings and Peace,
