IMG_0758

Hey guys! Head over to Greatist.com to check out the recipe for my latest contribution – Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers! These were delicious and I didn’t even realize until after I made them that I didn’t add any oil to the mix. Kinda awesome.

And, let me tell you. Quinoa glows:

Quinoa: is a protein powerhouse (one cup has 9 grams), containing all  of the essential amino acids and is thus a complete protein, is rich in fiber and digests slowly as to provide a feeling of fullness, acts an an internal cleanser and helps keep you “regular”, contributes to liver health with it vitamin B and folate content, builds bones with his good calcium content, and offer 15 percent of the U.S. recommended daily allowance of iron in just one cup, helping to deliver oxygen to the blood and boosting energy and brain power.
