Ok, so I am super late to the quinoa craze, but whoa! Quinoa is good.  Like, crazy good.  

I didn't always feel this way. Until this year I only ate quinoa plain with a side of fish and vegetables and finishing my plate was like torture, since, you know, quinoa is boring!  And to be honest, even a little yucky.  Sadly, this first boring taste of quinoa turned me off from this magical grain for years.  

Thankfully, I have rediscovered the beauty of quinoa thanks to all the amazing cooks and bloggers who had been experimenting with it during the many years I had missed.

Don't be silly like me.  If you are unsure about quinoa, try it. Try it!  Maybe it will rock your socks off, too.  Perfect in salads and soups, breakfast food and even dessert, quinoa can literally be used in everything.  No breadcrumbs? use quinoa!  Looking for a one-skillet dinner? use quinoa!  Quinoa also rocks in the protein and fiber department and is easy to digest.  Awesome for me and even better for my 2-year-old!
