Quinoa Crisp and Berry Parfait

When you need an easy-to-enjoy superfood that loads the body with nutrients, then it’s time to buddy up with quinoa. Learn ways to eat quinoa for any and every meal so you can slim down the healthy way.

We love quinoa because it’s a nutrition-rich food that nourishes the body in a way that makes it ideal for losing weight and keeping it off for good. In addition to fiber, it also includes zinc, folate, copper, and manganese. Quinoa also includes anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, plant-made substances which can lower the risk of inflammation-related conditions, like obesity [1]. This grain-like seed has protein, too—up to eight grams per cup.

Quinoa is also super-versatile, making it easy to fit into any healthy menu plan. It does everything from bulk up soups and stews to substitute for white rice and noodles. Plus, it can be prepared beforehand to cut down on time spent in the kitchen during a busy week. Quinoa keeps for up to five days in the fridge.
