So last night I tried a new recipe out on my family. Of course I had to choose one from the Ecology Health Center Cookbook, as the last one was so quick to prepare. Again, just a reminder that all the recipes in the cookbook are gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and yeast free.

Needless to say, it was a HIT!!!!  

We have now renamed them “Famous Fish Cakes.”

Food for Thought

I figured it was time I wrote up something about the basics of food, how healthy you can actually eat and enjoy it!
Here is one of my all time fav, easy Quinoa recipes.
Its simply delicious and is ready in 30 minutes (15 minutes of cook time and 15 minutes prep time.) But first, here are 7 health benefits of quinoa that not many people know.

Food For Thought

Food For Thought

1. It is high in protein- its protein balance is similar to milk & has more protein compared to rice, millet or wheat.
2. Its a good source of riboflavin -riboflavin helps reduce the frequency attacks in migraine sufferers by improving the energy metabolism within the brain & muscle cells.
3. The saponins from quinoa are used to promote healing of skin injuries in South America, making it a good antiseptic.
4. It is alkaline forming. Although it is not strongly alkaline-forming, it is comparable to wild rice, amaranth, and sprouted grains.
5. It only has 172 calories per ¼ cup dry quinoa.
6. It is gluten free. Since it is not related to wheat or grain. People are discovering they feel better & lose weight when they reduce gluten grains or  wheat products.
7. It is a complex carbohydrate with low glycemic index, which is good for weight management.
