From a yogic perspective, prana, the breath of life, permeates everything around us. It is the essential energy that lives in all things. Prana is also awareness. The sole act of focusing on our breath brings us into alignment and into the present moment. Our minds become clear and focused and we are able to access our inner wisdom.

✥ Become aware of your breath and bring balance into your life.

✥ Become aware of your breath and learn the undeniable benefits for your body, mind, and spirit.

✥ Become aware of your breath and empower yourself and your world.

That is em.prana.ment.

Prized as a sacred seed in the ancient Inca civilization, quinoa (pronounced kee-noua) is still a nutritional treasure. The benefits of quinoa are as plentiful as its culinary uses. Here are a few of the roles quinoa can play in a healthy diet:

Quinoa is a complete protein. One cup of quinoa has 9 grams, and contains all 8 of the essential amino acids   , making it a complete protein. Complete proteins are rare in the plant world, making quinoa an excellent food choice for vegetarians and vegans, and anyone looking for healthy protein source. It’s also high in iron and calcium, and is a good source of manganese, magnesium and copper, as well as fiber.

Although it is cooked and eaten like a grain, quinoa is actually a seed, and is related to spinach, chard and beets. The seeds are round, about the same size of millet or sesame seeds, and come in a rainbow of colors, from red to purple to green to yellow, but the quinoa that is most commonly found in stores is an off-white color.

This protein-packed food, with its nutty taste and chewy texture, is flavorful and extremely versatile. Quinoa is easily prepared and can be used in recipes where rice, wheat, corn or other grains are used. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free, making it an excellent food for celiac patients or other people following a gluten-free diet. Quinoa flour is great for baking cookies, breads and muffins, and quinoa flakes are a perfect substitute for oatmeal.

 A cup of cooked quinoa offers 15 percent of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance of iron, which helps to deliver oxygen to the blood, boosting energy and brain power. Quinoa’s vitamin B content can help keep the mind sharp, maintain brain volume and stabilize mood. Look for quinoa in the bulk section of natural food stores, or in the organic section of conventional supermarkets

Stay tuned! I’ll be sharing my favorite quinoa recipes in the weeks to come. I welcome yours as well!
