A few reasons behind us choosing our star ingredient, quinoa:

  • a fantastic natural source of (vegan & vegetarian!) protein (twice that of rice!)

  • one of the few plants that contains all nine essential amino acids

  • a terrific source of magnesium, manganese, potassium, zinc, copper, folate, iron, & phosphorus

  • has more fiber than most grains

  • is over 10% of the RDA for vitamins B1, B2 & B6

  • is naturally gluten free

  • a low glycemic index food; great for blood sugar control

We cook our quinoa with turmeric for a warm flavor that is brimming with incredible health benefits. Turmeric is beloved not only for its richness and depth it naturally adds to our food, but also for its:

  • ability to improve brain function and lower risk of brain diseases

  • anti-inflammatory properties

  • antioxidant-rich effects

  • bioactive, medicinal compounds including Circumin

  • heart-healthy attributes
