Who says nutritious can’t be delicious? Quinoa, a pseudo grain with South American origins, is both beneficial to your health and pleasing to your palate. Quinoa’s naturally bitter outer shell—later removed during processing—means that it is not necessary to use harsh chemicals to ward off hungry animals as it grows. This fact alone makes it a fan favorite amongst all-natural foodies. And did we mention it’s naturally gluten-free? It can be found in many different sizes, shapes and colors, but no matter what variety you choose, it’s always tasty!
