This months edition of Fibre Friday is all about quinoa thanks to our friends at Keen Wah – breakfast quinoa made delicious everyday of the week
Qunioa + Fibre: Quinoa provides the body with the recommended daily intake of fibre. It contains soluble and insoluble fibre, which decreases the amount of food you eat by allowing your body to feel full after a smaller meal. Fibre may also decrease your risk of heart disease and increase weight loss. It helps keeps the body regular and reduces the risk for certain types of cancer including colon.
Qunioa + Anti-inflammatory: The anti-inflammatory properties of quinoa help protect human blood vessels from inflammatory damage. Protection of this kind would also provide reduced risk of many cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients in quinoa make it a likely candidate for cancer risk reduction in humans.
