Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a healthy plant-based source of protein that is very popular in the U.S. right now, mainly because it is low-carb and naturally gluten-free. It is a complete protein, meaning it has all the essential amino acids.

One cup of cooked quinoa provides more than eight grams of protein. Quinoa is an excellent substitute for rice or pasta, and a good option for vegetarian or vegan diets.
