Did you know quinoa is a “wonder food”, it is full of protein, low in calories and fats. It will keep you full longer and will considerably reduce the excess intake of food. That is so cool for managing weight! Brussels sprouts are part of the cruciferous family, just like cauliflower and cabbage. They are superfoods and help prevent cancer.
