Dear Health Coach,


I follow a gluten-free diet and want to add more gluten-free grains to my diet. Is quinoa a good grain to add?


Thank you,

Searching For Gluten-Free

Dear Searching For Gluten-Free,


Absolutely! Quinoa is a naturally gluten-free grain. What’s more, quinoa is a whole grain, and is packed with nutrients. Along with being a great source of fiber, it is also rich in protein, antioxidants, and minerals, like magnesium, zinc, and folate. Quinoa can be used to replace rice, wheat ingredients like pasta or farro, barley, and other gluten-containing grains. You can find many diverse recipes for quinoa online, such as breakfast bowls, salads, and more. Enjoy!


In Good Health,

Your Health Coach
