Superfood of the Week: Quinoa Quinoa is an anciet grain that has recently attracted a new wave of attention. Don’t let its weird spelling (FY. Quinoa is a very good source of complete protein (vegetarians, hear that!), fiber, iron and good source of other nutrients like magnesium, some B vitamins and calcium.

It is gluten free for those wanting to limit or eliminate gluten. It is easy to cook. Quinoa is a tiny seed that you cook like rice and has a mild, nutty flavor with a light, fluffy texture.

Not only is it high in fiber and protein, it’s gluten free, too! This superfood contains more protein than any other grain; it’s also a good source of iron and potassium. Superfood of the Week: 20% OFF White Quinoa, Tri-color Quinoa & Chia Seeds healthy food and gourmet grocery delivery, online deli,and gluten-free food delivery in Metro Manila and around the Philippines. Superfoods are highly nourishing for our bodies, while also being low in calories and high in vitamins, minerals, macro and micronutrients.

Two of these delicious, health promoting, superfoods, include quinoa and kale. Quinoa, a grain-like seed, is an ideal food for endurance making it a great food for increasing vitality. Quinoa seeds can vary in colour from ivory to pink, orange to red, or brown to black. Read an interview with Camilla Saulsbury, author of the new 500 Best Quinoa.

By nature, quinoa is gluten-free but check just to be safe. (3) MANGANESE: Quinoa has 40-45% of your daily intake of Manganese, which relaxes blood vessels. This can help with hypertension, cardiovascular problems, aches and pains. (4) FIBER: My favorite! 1 cup of cooked quinoa contains 5g of fiber, about 20% of your recommended daily value. Mix a serving of leftover quinoa with some chopped peppers, onions, marinara sauce and cottage cheese.

After the mixture is well combined, spoon into a ramekin or two and top with some goat cheese. Bake at 400 F for about 15 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown. Quinoa as a Superfood It’s hardly surprising because quinoa contains double the protein of brown rice along with greater fiber content and a lower glycemic load. Not only is quinoa high in protein but it contains all essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein that cannot be made in the body and have to be obtained from food.

This week’s super nutricious, insainely healthy food is quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) a grain crop, grown for its edible seeds. As ancient incas stated, quinoa is “mother of all grains”, and was believed to be sacred. Nowadays, you can find it in almost every store and you should know that there are three main types: white, red and black.

List of related literature:

A single cup of cooked quinoa contains 8 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and anywhere from 10 to 60% of your daily requirements for various vitamins and minerals including manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, folate, copper, iron, zinc, potassium, and vitamins B1, B2, and B6.

  • Quinoa should be soaked in water for 12 hours then rinsed ao that the toxic innit will be released to the water! If cooked without being soaked first it will release poisons to our body. Of curse no one will die because it’s at the cellular level but it’s not good for health

  • Beautiful, I love Quinua I was given a bag today straight from peru. but there was something odd about it LSS. it was poped quinua, and you need no oil to pop it. i’ve been eating it as a ceral with soy milk all day. 

  • I love quinoa,but lately I have developed several food, allergies. my body does not tolerate gluten or dairy products,the last time I ate quinoa I had a reaction, I was wondering if it is gluten free?or maybe it was packaged  in a plant where wheat, oats or barley etc. are processed or maybe It was something else that I ate earlier that day that made me sick. Fantastic tutorial, I hope that in the next few months I’m able to pinpoint all of the foods that’s making me ill, because I’m sure looking forward to trying out some of your recipes. Thanks again for sharing.

  • Hello, excuse me for now, but i’ll watch it later today, because of ���������� MY FAMILY ALL OF THEM ARE USING THE INTERNET, and that doesn’t happen except when i want to use it, so i’ll watch later with a hi quality pixels, thank.

  • It’s very annoying when you skip over ingredients. For example, you definitely added flax seed but said nothing about it or how much…also did you rinse your quinoa first? I dunno feels rushed and like I’m missing some info.

  • I think I noticed steps not added into the text portions… a couple times too…. you zested a lemon, but didn’t say that only that at the end you added it… then you didn’t say you added the cranberries to the pan following the walnuts…. so the titles aren’t be paid close enough attention to either you’re leaving us just assuming…

  • They all look like my favorite but Im so excited I have all the ingredients for the quinoa cookies..Yay! Thanks for more delicious looking recipes! ��

  • this was the most fantastic, informative video I have seen.  Thank you so much for putting it together.  I had no idea about Quinoa before this.  I will be purchasing and making lots of recipes from your video.  Thank you again!!

    One thing though, the music sometimes was too loud which made it difficult to hear the speaker clearly.  Maybe you can have someone adjust the volume of the music over the voice…

  • Awe, really enjoyed this video! You’re glowing!! ���� also, can we talk about how adorable your outfit is and how yummy the cacao cookies look?!

  • Hey Kianoah is not the last grain used its still rice and some people believe that all there is to believe because a neighbor can’t come over! You know.Luckily in france both protugal and Spain can run even part spain with mountains, LOve thy neighbor doesn’t mean ETA Iraq because hitler boys kill even a hit leer. For I met them they dunn. They brooked and dunn.

  • Hi Mam. Need a small clarification. Some people say we have to follow a particular type of diet only for three days. It will not be effective after that. Any suggestions for this from your side

  • It’s a Spanish word and is pronounced KEY-NO-AH. The Quechua word it comes from is kinwa or kinuwa. The second one is pronounced kee-NOO-wah. Most Hispanics in Latin America pronounce quinoa kee-NO-ah.

  • Quinoa would be so great if the populatization of quinoa didn’t raise the local prices such that now people in South America can’t afford their own indigenous food anymore. 

  • thanku mam for giving such knowledge about quinoa..i wz not aware about it….thanku thanku again….i follow only your recipies bcz i feel it has completely balanced….

  • Quinoa is a good natural healthy food, one of the rare few plant foods contain good percentage of essential amino acids(protein).

    However, don’t let this common fact misleads you to think that Quinoa is one the only few best options to get essential amino acids from plant foods.

    You can get all the essential amino acids by combining a bunch of different plant foods such as whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds. Not only this way is cheaper cost by weight, also you get many more other nutrients than from Quinoa alone.

    Quinoa is expensive because supplies are in shortage, as more people jump on the Quinoa bandwagon, its market price will shoot up even higher.

    Quinoa is mostly grown in South America. The average poor South American people used to feed on Quinoa can no longer afford it because foreign companies are paying high prices for them and then take them out of the countries that produced them.

    The combination of low cost grains, beans, nuts and seeds are better choice than Quinoa in terms of nutrients, cost and humanity.

    Until Quinoa can be cheaply produced in large quantity, in the mean time AVOID QUINOA!

  • About oil choices. Not all oils are made equal. You want to keep away from hydrogenated oils such as margarine, vegetable oils are also toxic, stay away from canola oil. Flax seed, sesame, coconut and olive oils are all good choices healthwise.

  • Hey +watchsuperfoods, I am new to this channel and just on to the road to healthy replacements, but I say this channel will be a main stay in my strive for better. It is late 2015 and this video is still so helpful and relevant even being years old, keep up the good work guys, don’t let anything discourage you on your road to growing and revealing more, and if even in doubt remember you helped and inspired alot of people to look at what they put into their mouths and really question what will this do for me, I am among them:-,. Also will be checking out the coconut oil video as far healthcare goes, and it’s great you expand on more uses of these wonderful superfoods (I was thinking castor oil, it’s multiple uses make it pretty super) keep up the fantastic work guys.A fan.

  • You showed in your recipe that you are washing quinoa under the tap and then you put dry quino in the fryingpan
    Little confuse please explain

  • I bought and ate quinoa as I liked what I heard about it unfortunately after I ate it I became nauseous and the quinoa came back up violently ��
    Has anyone had a similar experience? Does anyone know why I reacted so violentlyany suggestion would be helpful. I am a diabetic and I am gluten intolerant so I need all the healthy food I can get.

  • Help! i tried to make quinoa like 5 times now, all different washing methods with my hands, a strainer, combination even one with 3 times refreshing of the water and then straining again ext. i tried everything in that area but the after taste is still very bitter/soapy what am i doing wrong?

  • Loving the plant based variety ������. Lentils or broccoli as a star ingredient would be nice to see.
    Sending greetings from Germany,
    Jessi ��

  • These “superfoods” series are fantastic! Pretty informative for everybody who wants to learn more details about nutrition. Quinoa is a very decent vegan protein source and does great work for proper digestion, so if somebody has problems with their bowel movement, quinoa is a simple and effective solution.

  • Biologically yes, but in culinary terms it’s a grain. Similar to how blackberries and strawberries are called berries when they’re really not.

  • Cabbage for star ingredient please! It’s healthy and cheap but I only have two delicious recipes and would love to learn more ways to prepare it.
    Thank you Yovana ❤️❤️❤️you are my go to person for recipes and motivation for over two years now ��

  • Is it important to have a daily serving of “beef jerky”?

    I tried the “Ctrl-F6-O” to silence the music, but all that happened is that the video turned upside down.

  • Definitely takes longer than 12-15 minutes to cook. After about 15 minutes she took of the lid but I had to cook for another 8 minutes without lid. That’s with the 1 cup quinoa and 2 cup water ratio

  • Parsley,1 cup Feta chesse,1/4 lemon vingrette, pinch salt, pinch pepper, sauté red pepper, 1 cup dice tomatoes, 1 cup cucumber 😉 yummy

  • A recepe includes what amount of ingredients. I’m still guessing on the water part. Was that to hard to figure out when making this video? This gets a fail. Sorry

  • Mera quinoa jab teyaar ho jata he tau baad me usme white-2 chote kede jaise kaafi saare parts dikhte he kya vo kede hi he ya normal he sab? Please anybody reply fast please

  • There are 20 amino acids that are building blocks of proteins. The “eight” amino acids are actually “essential amino acids” which can not be synthesized by human body and have to be taken from food. Quinoa is awesome, but the maker of this video should’ve done more research before posting it.

  • you rinsed the Quinoa, so it got wet, next frame the quinoa is dry and you are frying it? you did not say anything about drying the quinoa 1st. most confusing video

  • Thank you so much for the valuable information. Very well explained. I have seen other videos about Qinuoa recipe. Mostly people take 2:1 ratio. 2 Cups of water for 1 Cup of Qinuoa flakes/grains. Could you please let me know, what’s best?

  • Hi Vicky. Do you have anything for reducing bloating after meals or water retention in the body? Because I end up feeling huge at the end of the day. Also, I’m trying to figure out which diet plan will help me. Want to loose approx 10 kgs. Btw, yours are the most practical videos out here. Thanks!


  • Oh and btw the woman’s voice is lovely and the music is very calming and peaceful, and not overbearingly loud at all. Not sure why some feel that way but it was the perfect combination while I was learning:-‘, keep doing your thing +watchsuperfoods.

  • This is a perfect tutorial for ppl like me that want to eat more healthy but have never really tried specific things like Quinoa before. I feel more confident now and not like I’m gonna end up wasting my money buying it:) Keep up the good work!

  • I love this channel! Great recipes and the amazing nutritional facts of these superfoods are helpful and awesome. I subbed! Thanks for the video!

  • hello mam i seen ur video on other channel.. how can i contact you.. i have screenshoot.. they have copied your soya chunk diet plan…

  • I made your mushroom risotto and it was ahh-mazing! I had oyster mushrooms on hand so I used those instead of the shiitake. Use whatever you have and it will be worth the effort! Hubs and I fought over the “lunch leftovers” 😉

  • lol she forgot to tell how much quinoa can absorb how much water. People need the exact number like “0,2 l” because putting “2 cups” as a quantity into the description won’t help.

  • Good video. im giving it a like. Music background: theres a million of videos and commercials with that ugly and distracting song. something different for future videos maybe?

  • I added turmeric to my quinoa just like in the video, initially it was delicious, but afterward, it smelled so strong that I couldn’t even eat it

  • Great video, my quinoa never seems to come out right so I use bulgar wheat as my fave rice replacement grain. After watching your video I’m now inspired to try quinoa again plus I need to use up the seven boxes I bought lol.
