Quinoa is a great food to get to know when you're trying to eat healthier. It's loaded with protein and all sorts of nutrients. If you are eating a vegetarian diet, quinoa is a great alternative for meat. Sure you can make a meatless 'meatloaf' with rice, but the idea of using quinoa instead is the excellent protein content. The texture of quinoa is fun, too. It has a snappy texture and a nutty flavor that is delightful. Enjoy!
