I made Quinoa salad for dinner, and it was so easy and simple yet delicious, so I thought I had to chare it with my dear OYL readers:)
Quinoa is an excellent grain alternative. It is gluten-free and considered easy to digest. Quinoa (like oats) contains a balanced set of essential amino acids, making it a complete protein source.
If you suffering from migraines, add quiona into your diet . “Quinoa is a good source of magnesium, a mineral that helps relax blood vessels, preventing the constriction and rebound dilation characteristic of migraines”.
