Here is a brief break down of why you should include these grains in your diet:
Red Rice- A newer variety of rice grown in wetlands, it is a cross-pollination of regular rice and wild rices. The red colour has good phytonutrients that benefit your body.
Millet- A very “heart healthy” grain, commonly eaten by birds (and they are pretty light, eh?), full of magnesium and other goodies to prevent migraines, lower blood pressure, prevent heart attacks, etc.
Quinoa- Not actually a grain, but a complete protein (all the amino acids you need), historically eaten and referred to as “the gold of the Incas” as it helped their warriors sustain stamina. Eat it! It’s the best of the best. Superfood
