Quinoa Helps Weight Loss...Gluten Free too!

Quinoa is loaded with energy vitamins, high in fiber and protein and Quinoa is relatively low on the glycemic index and is a complex carb, It should help with having fewer cravings for sugary foods.

Substitute quinoa in dishes that call for pasta or rice and it can be eaten as a cereal. Mix it with strawberries and yogurt for a filling desert. It is also gluten free.

Apple Snack

Slice an apple. Sprinkle some cinnamon. Microwave a minute or until cooked. Add a dollop of frozen Greek plain yogurt. Not a pie, but a neat snack.

The phytonutrients in apples can help you regulate your blood
sugar, slow down digestion and help keep you full.

Mother always said an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Peanut butter

I eat Natural peanut butter, check the ingredients - make sure that it is just peanuts, no additives, some brands say natural but have sugar added.
