Wholefood? Superfood? What is Quinoa?

 

What is Quinoa?

Quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wah) is a grain that is considered to be almost a complete food. Very high in protein, full of vitamins, totally gluten free, wheat free and cholesterol free. It is usually organic, easy to digest of great benefit to everyone and simply delicious.
 
Quinoa is a pure and complete 100% grain and an almost perfect food. That is why I refer to it as the Supergrain, the Supergrain of the Century as its degree of nutrition is regarded as being quite potent.
 

History

It is an ancient grain native to the Andes Mountains in South America. It has been around for over 5,000 years and is known as the ancient and staple food of the ancient civilisation of the Incas having sustained them for centuries.
 

Resurgence in Popularity

It has now been rediscovered and resurfaced to become, in my mind, the superfood of our future, and, with all the food allergies that are so prevalent in our society especially with gluten and wheat intolerances, a welcome addition to our diet.
 

Cooking With Quinoa

Quinoa comes in a variety of different grains
Quinoa has a huge range of uses and lends itself beautifully to so many dishes. When cooked it has a very delicate texture and is lovely in soups, sweets, makes wonderful salads, pasta, breads and delicious vegetarian and non vegetarian meals. A perfect food for Vegetarians and Coeliac Sufferers.
 

The Book

In Rena Patten's Cooking with Quinoa - The Supergrain you will find 90 recipes all using quinoa in grain, flake or flour form. There are 8 chapters covering soups, Breads and Pasta, Salads, Vegetarian, Meat, Poultry, Seafood and Sweets. Recipes are easy to prepare and use fresh ingredients that are readily available.
 
There is something for everyone in this book regardless of whether one is wheat or gluten intolerant, has other food allergies or no food problems at all. It is a must in every kitchen.

  • SCITEC 100% Casein Complex

    Micellar Casein Based Casein Complex

     
    100% of Protein from Casein
     
    100% Casein Complex is a Micellar Casein dominant milk protein blend exclusively from casein milk proteins.
     
    Casein is high in the essential branched-chain amino acids (BCAA’s) and very high (higher than Whey) in L-Glutamine, the most abundant free amino acid in human blood.
     
    100% Casein Complex’s protein contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass and also to the maintenance of normal bones.
     
    This product’s milk proteins are so-called complete proteins, because they provide the body with all the necessary types of amino acids, including the 9 amino acids the body cannot synthesize and must be supplied by the diet (i.e. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine).
     
    Extra L-Glutamine and Taurine plus the digestive enzymes Papain and Bromelain are added to the formula!
     
     

    Directions:

    Mix 1 scoop with 350 ml liquid and shake vigorously! 100% Casein Complex can be ideal when meals are too far apart for some reason, or before going to bed. If you use pre- and intra-workout nutrition (protein or amino acids), it may be preferable to include Casein as the main post-workout protein. Use this product in conjunction with food as part of a healthy, balanced diet, not as a substitute for such.
     
    Aspartame free!
     

    Allergen info:

    Manufactured in a facility that processes milk, soy and egg proteins, and gluten, peanuts!

  • Bulletproof Brain Octane

    18x Stronger Than Coconut Oil – For Maximum Cognitive Function!

     
    Brain Octane rapidly metabolizes into ketones, providing almost instant energy to the brain without requiring glucose from dietary sugars or carbohydrates. This makes it the top choice for reaching peak brain performance all day, especially during demanding tasks or during Bulletproof® Intermittent Fasting. Brain Octane also has potent anti-microbial effects that help to support healthy digestion and immune function.
     

    Brain Octane™ Oil may provide the following benefits:

    Fast energy for the brain – Brain Octane converts into energy faster than other fats or oils*
    Fuels a starved brain – Brain Octane delivers much needed ketones to fuel a starved brain that can no longer efficiently metabolize glucose for energy*
    Reduces brain fog – Slaughters the gut yeast, candida, responsible for producing 180+ toxic chemicals in the blood stream*
    Rebalancing of yeast in gut – Brings candida into balance
     
    Does NOT increase blood cholesterol – Metabolized differently than other types of fat*
    Make meals more Bulletproof – Flavorless and easy to add into diet. Mix into any smoothie, soup, sushi, coffee or most recipes, for more intense mental activity
    Flavorless and odorless to add to any liquid or food*
    Easy Storage – No refrigeration required and liquid at room temperature
    Replaces far more expensive versions 
    Unique High Quality Processing
    Most caprylic acid comes with an unpleasant goat-like smell and taste, but we use a unique, time consuming, proprietary process to reduce free fatty acids.
     
    Brain Octane is completely tasteless and odorless – perfect for mixing with foods to bring out their flavors!
    Brain Octane comes from a combination of two sources, coconut and palm kernels. Because sustainability is Bulletproof, we source Brain Octane from 100% sustainable coconut palms, and our palm kernel growers are working to achieve a completely sustainable, certified palm-farming model.
     

    Use & Ingredients:

     
     
     
    Use Brain Octane to add to or replace other oils in your diet, but not replacing them completely.
     
    Start using Brain Octane one teaspoon at a time and increase slowly over several days. Use up to 1-3 tablespoons per day*
    Too much Brain Octane Oil, especially if consumed on an empty stomach, can result in loose stools or a stomachache.*
     
    The best way to maximize energy is to mix Brain Octane in Bulletproof® Coffee, smoothies, salad dressings, or other recipes.
    Brain Octane Oil is suitable for cooking below 320 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Brain Octane is packaged in a BPA-free plastic bottle. It is GMO-free, aflatoxin-free, BSE/TSE-free, and melamine-free.

    Seaweed
     
    Nature makes it incredibly nutritious, we make it incredibly delicious.
     
    We love seaweed! It not only tastes great, it’s also loaded with nutritional value. In fact, seaweed has the highest density of vitamins and minerals of any vegetable on the planet. Yep. Seaweed is a vegetable. Some people even call it sea lettuce. Kids and adults in Asian cultures have been eating their sea vegetables for centuries, enjoying it’s taste, texture, and many health benefits.
     
    What makes the taste of roasted seaweed so amazingly good? Umami, it’s a savory flavour so mouthwatering and unique that it doesn’t fit into the four basic taste groups. You might know umami from eating nori, the kind of seaweed used as a wrap for sushi. Now umami is so popular it’s considered to be the fifth basic taste, right up there with the four other biggies your tongue knows and loves.

  • Bass Brush Dry Skin Brush 100% Bamboo

    Dry Skin Body Brush

     
    This body brush is made from 100% pure bamboo and consists of natural bristles. It can be used on wet or dry skin and is perfect for invigorating the skin.
     
    Skin brushing has a wide range of health benefits, stemming from the fact that the skin is a major organ of elimination for the body. Just like your kidneys, liver and colon, it's one of the body's largest organs and up to one third of your body's daily impurities are excreted through the skin - WOW!
     
    Skin brushing (particularly dry skin brushing) helps keep the pores clear and the skin active to assist the body in its cleansing process. It assists in lymphatic drainage by stimulating the lymph nodes and promoting the healthy flow of lymph fluid. For this purpose you will need to brush using upwards strokes towards your heart, as this is the direction that the lymph fluid travels.
     
    Body brushing can also improve circulation and skin hydration as it activates oil and sweat glands bringing moisture to the skin.

  • Pure Foods Essentials Organic Black Pepper Whole

    Black Pepper Whole

     
    Black pepper is added to most savoury dishes today and is an integral part of Chai and turmeric tea.  In earlier times black pepper was so valuable it was used as currency. 
     
    Black pepper is recognized for improving digestions and promoting gut health by helping to prevent the formation of intestinal gas.  It also promotes sweating and has diuretic properties as well as having antioxidant and antibacterial properties.
     
    We recommend that you always use black pepper with turmeric as is aids in the release of curcumin.

  • HTG Natural Porridge Blend

    NATURAL PORRIDGE BLEND

     
    This is a delightful & nutritious porridge blend that is quick and easy to cook. Made in house, the ingredients are rolled oats, rolled triticale, polenta & linseed.
     
    VEGAN, DAIRY FREE, EGG FREE, HIGH FIBRE, LOW SODIUM, LOW FAT, VEGETARIAN, WHEAT FREE,CANE SUGAR FREE
     
     

    HOW TO USE:

    This delicious porridge that is quick and easy to cook.
     
    To prepare this porridge add 1 part porridge and 2 parts milk or water to a saucepan. Cook uncovered over medium heat for 5-10 minutes stirring frequently. Try adding your favourite dried fruits or cinnamon during the cooking process for something different. It is delicious with milk and maple syrup or rapadura sugar.
     
    Ideally, soak this blend overnight in acidulated water (add a squeeze of lemon juice to the water). This simple practice will vastly improve the nutritional benefits because soaking in acidulated water allows enzymes, lactobacilli and other useful organisms to break down and neutralise most of the phytic acids naturally found in grains. This helps our bodies to digest the blend which improves the nutritional benefits we get from it. It also makes it smoother and creamier in texture.
