For this weekend’s menu, the masterminds of the DeliverLean kitchen have created a Grilled Chicken Bruschetta served alongside Orchard Quinoa Salad with Baby Arugula. I thought this would be the perfect time to discuss all of the amazing benefits of quinoa.

Quinoa is all the rage in the health world today. It’s becoming even more popular as it is considered one of the best SuperFoods out there because it is jam-packed with a ton of vitamins and minerals. Quinoa is also rich in antioxidants, which will help your body fight off and get rid of any free radicals that are considered to be harmful. Quinoa is also rich in fiber, which will improve your digestional health. It also assists in weight-loss because it is complete with the nutrients that our bodies need; but at the same time, it gives us a feeling of fullness, to keep unnecessary snacking at bay.

One of the most well known benefits of quinoa is that it is also extremely rich in protein, and contains all nine essential amino acids. Amino acids are known as “the building blocks of protein,” because they are used by your body for making muscles, hormones, neurotransmitters, bones and all sorts of other important things. People who work-out on regular basis will benefit from consuming quinoa directly post workout, as it will assist with them with the repair process and in-turn help achieve the best possible outcome.

Many health-nuts (myself included) have a hard time incorporating quinoa into their diet, because it is so incredibly difficult to cook. Luckily, our DeliverLean world-class chefs are professionals when it comes to perfecting this dish.  Not only have they perfected it’s hard to reach consistency, they’ve made this dish taste so flavorful, it will be hard for you to believe that it’s such a superstar in the superfood world.
