Trying Something New: Cook Quinoa in VitaClay

Quinoa is a “new” (ancient) super-food grain on the health scene, and VitaClay makes cooking Quinoa easy!  Quinoa was once renowned as “the gold of the Incas,” and has long been recognized for its nutritious properties.

The Incas of South America regarded it as the mother of all grains, and used it in sacred rituals. Quinoa is rich in amino acids and contains a complete protein, making it a perfect addition to a vegan lifestyle. Gluten-free, it is also a boon to those with food allergies. An excellent source of protein, iron, calcium, potassium and copper, it is a great way to feed your body accessible nutrients that can be difficult to absorb from other foods. It is also high in fiber and a recommended addition to a healthy diet. With push-button controls and pre-programming settings, throw your Quinoa in the clay pot and come home to fresh, healthy goodness. It’s like having your own personal chef!
