An Alternative to Rice

If you’re looking for a healthy grain at your next dinner, consider this! Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is packed with about 8 grams of protein per cooked cup and is gluten free. This can be a great substitute to white rice for someone living with diabetes (and it's just as easy to cook), especially if you’re conscious of the glycemic index in your food. Try adding fresh lime and cilantro for a citrusy twist!

How do you cook your quinoa?
