Quinoa Everywhere

I’m doing my master’s project on the effectiveness of nutrition education programs in low income communities in New York City…and so I’ve spent a lot of time with nutritionists lately. One of them mentioned quinoa as a good source of protein…

I admit I had never heard of it, but now I am seeing references to it everywhere. In fact, I was thinking about blogging about a story I heard on NPR the day after the Iowa caucuses (the reporter said Hillary Clinton’s camp looked like they had swallowed whole lemons…which, without making any political commentary whatsoever, I thought was a really great description…) and I came across this: Quinoa: A Sacred, Super Crop.

(My argument would likely be stronger if I could remember *other* recent references…but, alas, I am lazy, and so you’ll have to take my word for it.)

I am even tempted to make those quinoa-stuffed peppers…
