The first time I tried to pronounce the word I said “qua-no-uh”. It had to be one of the most embarrassing moments I’d had that summer. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I actually gave this grain a chance.

Quinoa is a pseudocereal that contains essential amino acids and is high in protein. For dinner I placed some in my stuffed pepper along with chickpeas, black beans, onions, yellow, red, and green peppers, and a crap load of tasty herbs. For those who think you can only get protein from meat, eggs, and powder, allow me to introduce you to quinoa. Here’s the recipe!

The pepper by itself would’ve been enough, but I paired it with a 4oz salmon fillet, and I’ve gotta say I’m STUFFED!

What are you having for dinner?
