QuinoaIf you've ever seen this on a menu and wanted to order it but didn't know how to pronounce it, it's "keen-wa." It's a grain that's been a staple in South American cooking for 4,000 years. Quinoa is high in protein and fiber and is a good source of zinc, vitamin E and selenium, which have been linked to lowered risks for diabetes and heart disease. It's typically eaten as a side dish much like rice or pasta would be.
Don't like quinoa? Really? Try it. You will.
