food thumb6   $5 Health Book Auction for Charity!

Lunch today featured a much better grain than millet! ;)

QUINOA!!!!

I love quinoa and don’t make it often enough!

6 grams of protein per 1/4 cup serving (uncooked). As well as many vitamins and minerals, with it being especially high in manganese, magnesium, iron, tryptophan (oh on don’t fall asleep Ange!), copper, phosphorus.

I mixed it with leftover curry sauce I made last night!

Along with a Money’s Veggie burger, high protein pita, tons of hummus, and red pepper:

This was such a filling and flavourful lunch! :) I intended to have a big fruit bowl for dessert but my tummy is a bit full right now, so I will have it as a snack in between orders later today.

Today’s question: What’s your favourite grain?

Mine is probably spelt. I only discovered it this year but it is so versatile, nutritious, easy to digest, and amazing in my baked goods! What about you?

Hi Kelley! Thanks for your comments :) I buy the high protein pitas at Loblaws in Ontario. They are the best pita I have ever been able to find in terms of fibre and protein content (both over 10 grams I believe).

I think my favourite grain is quinoa…I discovered it about a year and a half ago and I love it.

(are they PC brand pitas?)

Nothing beats quinoa! I made bulgur for the first time the other day, and it was just to mushy, like oatmeal. I love me some quinoa!!

my favorite grain is millet ;) haha! seriously, i love it. it’s like a whole grain couscous! i love how it can be fluffy like rice, or mushy like oats, but always delicious.

Kristen July 17, 2009

Whitney- how do you make your cheesy quinoa? I love cheese, I love quinoa…it sounds like a perfect mix. I’ve made salads with it and added feta, but I’m kind of excited about the prospect of other cheese additions.

Does polenta count!? I just made it for the first time the other week with a bit of butter and honey stirred in and now I can’t get enough!

Quinoa for sure! The “regular” kind, but also TJ has an awesome mix that is quinoa, Israeli couscous, and lots of other great stuff!

The globars on the site look fantastic. I love what you have done with them! Also I made the curry for lunch today and it was great! Didn’t look as good as yours but was delicious!

Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope July 17, 2009

Haha, does whole grain bread count? Honestly, I’ve never tried quinoa, millet, pilaf, etc. But I love my slice of Rudi’s whole grain bread! :) Your quinoa definitely looks delicious though. I should give it a try!

I love quinoa and have actually wondered if “Angela has tried it” since I had not seen it on your website before. What is your favourite way to eat it? It is my fav and I eat it all the time!
