BTFit Recipe: Mexican Quinoa Bowl

Mexican Quinoa Bowl

Skip the extra calories and fat from Taco Bell and Chipotle this weekend and instead try our Mexican Quinoa Bowl.  Quinoa…you might be wondering what this is and how you pronounce it??  Quinoa, pronounced “KEEN-wah,” looks like a grain, but is technically a seed that is high in protein and fiber.  It is prepared like rice and other grains and can be used in place of rice in some recipes.  We love it because it offers a nice substitute for brown rice and packs more protein than any other whole grain.  Try it…we promise you won’t be disappointed!
