Q Is For Quinoa

Screen Shot 2017-08-24 at 12.06.47 PMI happen to LOVE quinoa!

Unfortunately, it doesn’t love me back.

Even so, I can’t think of a better way to highlight this unique pseudo-grain than Q Is For Quinoa – as it fits in rather nicely with my on-going educational series “A Gluten Primer, Everything You Wanted to Know From A – Z”.

If you’ve been listening to these videos – you understand by now that gluten and wheat sensitivities could easily be the root cause of your health issues.

I also recently shared that most grains – along with many other plant foods – contain problematic compounds like lectins.

Quinoa – although it’s a wonderful substitute for wheat flour, rice, and even oats – may not work for everyone for this very reason.

NOTE: The ideal way to cook Quinoa is with a Pressure Cooker! This method is equally effective for other grains and legumes – however, while pressure cooking will destroy lectins, it does NOT destroy gluten.

I talk a lot in this space about Special Diets, gluten-free and otherwise.

But nothing exists in a vacuum. This is why EVERYTHING in your environment matters – not just food!
