Quinoa: Optimal Beauty Benefits + How To Cook It

I love grains and I don’t care what anyone else says. ;p

I’ve done my research and know how amazingly beneficial they are! Gluten-free grains such as millet, brown rice, buckwheat, amaranth and of course, quinoa are a big part of my diet. I thrive off of them.

Quinoa takes the cake for most beneficial in my eyes, though because it is a complete protein. It’s an ancient grain and it has all 8 essential amino acids.

Here I’ve made a big batch of Quinoa (pronounced: keen-wah) for the week ahead. It can be stored in an air tight container or glassware with cover in fridge and eat throughout the week.

Preparation is one of the key ingredients to excellent self-care and healthy living.

Prep:

Soak your quinoa in filtered water overnight (Place in bowl and fill with water- about 2 inches above quinoa). The next morning rinse and drain.

Cooking:

  1. Place in pot and add filtered water- again 2 inches above your desired amount.
  2. Cook on medium heat until it boils.
  3. Turn off the stove and then leave it sitting on the stove for 15-20 more minutes until fluffy.
  4. Drain, rinse again (optional), flavor (like you would brown rice) and enjoy!

Tip: If you choose to eat it warm (eating it cold is great too) I recommend warming it up in the oven vs. the microwave as the microwave will kill all the of delicious nutrients your body is craving.
