Easy to prepare and unique in texture the Red Quinoa is a practical addition to your active lifestyle. With its impressive red and burgundy coloring it is sure to brighten any recipe. The nutritional profiles of all Quinoa are similar with Red Quinoa having a little more heartier texture and flavor, while the red color is another striking difference. Quinoa, pronounced KEEN-wha, was once the sacred staple of the Incas. The Incas called Quinoa the Mother Grain. Quinoa is similar in size to millet but flat with a pointed oval shape and looks like a cross between sesame seeds and millet. Technically quinoa is not a true grain, but is the seed of the Goosefoot plant. It is used as a grain because of it's cooking characteristics.
Quinoa has a fluffy consistency and a mild, delicate, slightly nutty flavor that borders on bland. Quinoa has a delightful characteristic that is all it's own: as it cooks, the outer germ around each grain twists outward forming a little white, spiral tail, which is attached to the kernel. The grain itself is soft and delicate and the tail is crunchy which creates and interesting texture combination and pleasant "crunch" when eating the grain. Quinoa is the highest in protein of all the grains. It contains 10 essential amino acids, is low in sodium and high in calcium and iron. Quinoa is a wonder food for building strength and endurance.
I made up a pretty simple salad with the Quinoa and I couldn't get over how much it made with just one cup! The Quinoa tasted delicious and it is so good for you too!
My children are enjoying the sandwiches made with the Signature Traditional Sprouted Organic Grain Bread.
Sprouted Organic Grain bread is a type of bread made from whole organic grains that have been allowed to sprout, that is, to germinate. Beneficial enzymes are activated which cause the grains to sprout and become a living food. Sprouting is the only way to release all of the vital nutrients stored in whole grains. BFL = Breads For Life.
Nature’s goodness and flavor are baked into each slice of SHILOH FARMS wholesome, traditional sprouted organic grain bread. You get the health benefits of a nourishing sprouted whole organic grain bread while enjoying the great flavor nature intended. Our sprouting process increases valuable nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, B-vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium along with retaining the important natural fiber and bran. Sprouting also causes a natural change that makes the protein and carbohydrates easier for the body to use. Sprouts are lower in carbohydrates and calories than the grains from which they were sprouted.
This bread is still soft but full of goodness - it makes it a favorite with my children!
As for me, I like to snack on the Black Figs!
Black Mission Figs are named for the mission fathers who planted the fruit as they traveled north along the California coast. This Natural Mission Fig is famous for its distinctive flavor. The fresh fruit exhibits a deep purple shade which darkens to a rich black color as the fig is sun-dried making this fig an esthetic and an edible delight.
These figs are harvested in the late summer and early fall. They are then Sun-dried and stored in cold storage until they are packaged and shipped to your store. They have no fat, no sodium or cholesterol. Figs provide more fiber than any other common fruit or vegetable. The fiber is both soluble and insoluble.
So as you can see, Shiloh Farms has some DELICIOUS, unique, and wonderful organic foods that I am in love with and eat everyday! I find a way to eat or make a meal with at least one Shiloh Farms product a day because they are AWESOME!!!
