Quinoa...the Answer to My Pregnancy Prayers

Quinoa Paella? Yes, please!

One of the things that I struggled with most when I was pregnant was getting enough healthy protein.

I was so nauseous throughout both of my pregnancies that very little protein actually stayed down.

The solution to my problem was quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah)! It was so gentle on my upset stomach and was easy for me to digest.

High in protein, quinoa is a whole food that’s simply packed with antioxidants, phytochemicals, and essential nutrients.

Quinoa is also the only grain that contains all of the essential amino acids, which makes it a complete protein.

One ¾ cup serving provides 25% of the daily recommendation for iron and magnesium and 10% of the daily recommendation for vitamin E, potassium, and fiber.
