Although somewhat new to the supermarkets, quinoa dates back to the time of the Incas.
It is often referred to as a grain but is actually a relative of leafy green vegetables.
Quinoa is high in magnesium which can help if you suffer migraines. It is great for cardiovascular health and supports energy production within cells. Quinoa is a great source of iron, zinc, magnesium and potassium. Good work quinoa!

Quinoa can be found in the health food section of supermarkets and in health food shops. There are a couple of different varieties but cooking instructions can be found on the back of packets.
