Quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wa) is an ancient seed (not really a grain) from the Inca civilisation. Quinoa is a complete protein and contains more protein than other grains.
To be vegetarian is to disagree – to disagree with the course of things today. Starvation, world hunger, cruelty, waste, wars – we must make a statement against these things. Vegetarianism is my statement. And I think it’s a strong one.
