I used to have an addiction to rice. I’d consume so much of it not realizing that the bloating, listlessness, weight gain not to mention constipation, to a large extent was due to the consumption of rice. It’s taken me at least five years to be able to walk past a bowl of rice and not have it even turn my head. How I did this was with thanks to quinoa. Quinoa is delicious, gluten free, much lower in calory than rice and contains alot of protein and magnesium amongst others. I particularly mention magnesium because it is very good for hair. Quinoa is in principle a seed passing through our bodies much faster thus lighter on digestion than than rice. I’m so grateful to have been introduced to quinoa and my favourite way to enjoy it is seasoned with cumin, salt and curry powder.
