Did you know that quinoa is related to species such as beetroot, spinach and tumbleweeds? It is gluten free and a complete protein. It is also a good source of magnesium and iron. Magnesium contributes to energy production, proper functioning of muscles, and arteries. Iron is required for protein and enzyme production, especially hemoglobin.
Buckwheat is another super-food related to rhubarb. It is also considered a complete protein with the biological value above 90%, which translates into how much protein can be digested and absorbed by the body. It is also a good source of manganese, copper and magnesium.
