Quinoa 101

I get a lot of questions about quinoa, why I use it in so many recipes, and why I eat so much of a "grain", when I should really be getting rid of all those "carbs".

Well, instead of writing a lengthy boring blog post about it, I found an incredible video by Health Counselor Dani Spies, whose website is packed with information about some of the most basic ingredients.  Here she'll explain, in detail, that quinoa is not actually a grain (it's closely related to spinach and beets) and how it's a powerhouse of protein and nutrition.  She'll also show you how to cook it (all in under 4 minutes!)
