This grain crop is grown for its edible seeds… 

Quinoa

which I have been trying to introduce into my diet…

Seeds like Chia, Flax and now Quinoa…

It is a very pretty purple color when growing in the fields…

and this is how I tried this new grain… product of  “Path of Life”…

which I bought at Wal-Mart… in the freezer section…

It is a nutrient-rich food… and this package integrated the Quinoa with Spinach, Tomato and Feta Cheese…

Good source of IRON and PROTEIN…

The packaging says, ” it meets the lifestyles of today’s health-conscious individuals”…

The taste was quite good… and I love the texture…

I can now say, “I have tried this new grain”…
