Serve yourself with all the information, preparation methods and many recipes of quinoa
Weight loss pills, weight loss powders and supplements were used categorically by a specific set of people perhaps a decade ago, and there are folks who still plunge and invest a large amount on one supplement per month which is equivalent and comparable to the amount spent on the groceries for the entire family for a month!
What escapes our memory is:
In my experience all quick fixes are a big NO. So lets Uncomplicate.
Let’s invest WISELY on your groceries.
So talking about groceries, one such seed (pseudo grain) is quinoa that is quintessential, if you are contemplating weight loss.
Eg: Quinoa is good for protein content especially for vegetarians. Set side by side with other grains, a cup of quinoa provides 222 calories which might be 20 percent of the total calories allowed on an average 1200 kcal plan. On that account, if the serving size and portioning are not planned well, it may be difficult to loose weight.
Do remember, the fundamental basics of healthy cooking apply to quinoa as well – cooking quinoa in minimum oil and with loads of vegetables preserves the essence of the nutritional benefits dispensed by the super grain.
