Addictive Snack, Take Two!

This is a healthier variation of Perfectly Addicting Snack! Enter quinoa!  

QUINOA is:

~ A very healthy WHOLE GRAIN, so it's rich in many nutrients, phytochemicals, and fiber!
~ Easy and FAST to prepare ...just like rice.  In particular, it cooks faster than brown rice, done in about 15 minutes!

Quinoa is moist like cottage cheese, and sort of has a similar texture, with none of the saturated fat! 

It tastes like pasta, similar to those tiny Italian pasta stars, pastini!...only it's a whole grain!


Quinoa prepared (Costco sells a big bag!)
Trader Joe's Lemon Pepper with attached grinder
Chick peas (optional)

COMMENTS: What are you doing this weekend?  Buying hemp seeds!  You can get them in the bulk food section of Whole Foods, or get organic from www.amazon.com!

I love Hemp hearts! They used to sell a huge bag at Costco as well :-) That recipe looks yummy!

Darn! I do get bummed that products come and go from Costco, especially some healthy ones, that perhaps aren't selling as well :( Maybe they'll come back! I tried my first Larabar from Costco, and never had the chance to buy a second box (from Costco!). Thanks for stopping! Hope you enjoy!!
