The Incas called quinoa "the mother of grain" and fed it to their warriors before battle. Now people refer to it as a "super grain" since it offers a healthy balance of essential amino acids. Each of these nicknames is slightly off. Quinoa is actually a seed - not a grain - from a plant related to spinach, beets and Swiss chard. Call it what you will. We'll just call it delicious. FDA says that diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods and low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may help reduce the risk of heart disease and other cancers.
