Did you know?

About 25% of quinoa’s fatty acids come in the form of oleic acid, a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, and about 8% comes in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the omega-3 fatty acid most commonly found in plants. Most foods lose their healthy fatty acids when oxidized, but quinoa’s nutrients hold up to boiling, simmering and steaming.

Place them on the prepared baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes flipping them halfway.

Did you know?

Sweet potatoes are rich in lycopene, b-carotene, and potassium and thus can help prevent the onset of heart attack and stroke.

Serve with low-fat curds.
