Eat more quinoa

Rich in protein, fiber, and hard-to-get magnesium, which protects against hypertension,

quinoa has a well-deserved reputation as a “super food.” (A typical serving has twice as much protein and eight times as much fiber as a serving of white rice.)
But some people find that it can taste a little bland.

Restaurant chefs have a secret that’s not included in the directions on the box, says Scott Uehlein, corporate chef for Canyon Ranch:

They toast it first. “That gives it the most incredible nutty, rich flavor,” he says.

Simply spread quinoa on a tray and place it in a 350-degree oven for eight to ten minutes, until it’s golden brown, then cook it up in a pot according to instructions.
The technique also improves the taste of other so-called super-grains, Uehlein says, including buckwheat and millet.
