Quinoa: One of Nature's Healthiest Protein-Rich Foods

If you're looking for a truly healthy, protein-rich food to anchor your diet, I highly recommend that you consider quinoa (pronounced keen wah). Called the "mother of grains" by the Incan empire, quinoa is native to South America, and is naturally rich in all nine essential amino acids - these are amino acids that we humans can't make from other nutrients, so must obtain from our diet. Quinoa is one of a few grains that are gluten-free, and for most people, it's easy to digest and utilize. Read more about Quinoa: One of Nature's Healthiest Protein-Rich Foods

Organic Tofu

I've long maintained that when eaten in moderation, organic soy can be a healthy food choice for most people. One of the major arguments against eating soy is that it contains phytates that can prevent absorption of minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron. To this point, I think it's important to consider that minimally processed organic soy has been assessed to contain anywhere between 1.4 to 3.0 percent phytates, while highly processed and concentrated forms of soy like soy protein isolate typically contain closer to 5 percent phytates.
