Quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat. It is a complete protein, which means it contains all the essential amino acids. What’s more, red quinoa contains the highest content of iron, which keeps our red blood cells healthy. Quinoa is a great alternative to rice or other starchy grains.
