  Quinoa is a super grain
  Posted by: gunney on Aug-21-12 7:31 PM (EST)

One grain I would suggest is quinoa (keen-wha). It's originally from the Andes and was a prized grain of the Incas.

Quinoa has excellent nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (12%18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. This is extremely rare for a plant source.

Quinoa is also a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Its a gluten free complex carbohydrate that is filling with a slow "burn" rate.

And it come in an instant form with a variety of mixes.
