Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood

The versatility of this superfood makes it easy to bridge the gap between already established eating habits and increasingly nutritious food choices.
- Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming

Quinoa 365Sisters Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming were brought up on strictly homemade baking, bringing dried seaweed and brown seedy bread in their school lunches while other kids ate perfectly symmetrical sandwiches made with white bread. Although they may have felt envious then, their mother’s healthy influence taught them that nothing could be better than the natural goodness of whole food.

Now years later they have written Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood. Patricia’s adventurous experimentation and insistence on creating great-tasting meals with the most nutritional impact combined with Carolyn’s critical eating habits have resulted in a book that showcases recipes for special occasions, weekday dinners, breakfasts and lunches, and even baby food! With intriguing history and nutritional characteristics of quinoa, you will soon learn why this superfood has sparked the interest of so many. Identified as one of the world’s healthiest foods, quinoa has a complete combination of all life-supporting nutrients, making it an ideal whole food to incorporate into your daily lifestyle.
