Quinoa (White) (Top Seller!)
This superfood, though often referred to as a grain, is actually a seed from a vegetable related to Swiss chard, spinach and beets. High in protein and rich in antioxidants, this seed is not fattening and is a smart carb, meaning it’s a complex carbohydrate with a low glycemic index, which won’t spike your blood sugar. Great as an alternative to rice!
