Do you Quinoa?

I've pretty much replaced fish with quinoa for lunch.  I cook it up in the same giant covered frying pan with the same sort of cut up onion, carrot and squash as I used to cook my fish.  I really can't afford the sort of fish I like, and quinoa suits my budget.  The nutrition experts claim that quinoa's extremely healthy.  There haven't been the negative revelations like those about tofu.

I cook it by sautéing the vegetables, then adding the quinoa and then some boiling water.  After a few minutes I leave it covered, not only with the frying pan cover, also with a towel to keep the heat in and prevent burning.

I just hope it doesn't have too many carbohydrates for me.  I eat eggs as my protein for breakfast and poultry for dinner.

Good for you! Yes, it is supposed to be healthy stuff.

I've been eating millet in addition to my usual brown rice.

I went heavily into animal protein the first few years after ending my 25 years as vegetarian. I guess I'm more balanced now.
