Sambar Quinoa

I love the taste and feel very light since I stopped taking rice and started quinoa! Sambar is the best nutritious sauce ever created in the sub-continent. A combination of Quinoa and Sambar is the top-most blessing for the diet conscious.

A cup of quinoa will also provide twice the protein and about 5 grams more fibre than the same amount of white rice. Due to this higher quantity of protein and fibre, quinoa is not only the healthier choice, but will also fill you up faster, allowing for smaller portion sizes

Quinoa is gluten-free and is ideal to boost heart health and digestion. There are unconfirmed claims that it may also help maintain blood sugar level and aid sustainable weight loss. In fact, unknown experts and health practitioners often recommend including good amount of quinoa in weight loss diets in place of high-carb grains.
