Raw uncooked quinoa.

The bodybuilding community can be great resource for quick, easy, and nutritious meals. Serious bodybuilders use strict diets that allow their bodies to burn fat while building muscle hence.  While trolling some bodybuilding sites, I found the Quinoa Salsa Salmon Hash.  This super easy recipe features one of my new favorite foods – Quinoa.  Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wa’) is a gluten-free, high protein content seed that can be cooked as a grain.  Raw uncooked Quinoa has 24 grams of protein per cup.  When cooked, Quinoa is a little chewier than couscous and absorbs the flavors it is cooked with very nicely. Combined with salmon and your favorite salsa, this recipe is a delicious, protein rich dish. Enjoy.
