White quinoa is a gluten-free and organic grain native to South America that contains iron, B-vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin E and fiber. White quinoa is high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contains sufficient amounts of all nine amino acids. Quinoa is extremely nutritious and beneficial for metabolic health and weight loss.

To cook a perfect pot of quinoa, fill the pot with twice as much water as quinoa. Leave the pot uncovered and take it to boil. Once boiling, take the pot off the heat and let the quinoa steam so it opens up.
