Expert Tips

  • “Since learning about my high cholesterol, I have been working whole grains into my eating choices. I've found this quinoa is a ‘super grain’ with a lot of protein and no cholesterol.” Kevin W.
  • This great side dish contains quinoa (KEEN-wa), which has been hailed as a "supergrain" because it contains more protein than any other grain, plus it cooks in only 20 minutes. Like other whole grains, it's low in fat and provides a rich, balanced source of vital nutrients.
