I’ve actually heard about this latest food craze from my health-conscious Filipina friend. Even the UN gave this superfood an international year to commemorate its awesomeness. My friend also swears by it as a great alternative to rice, which we Filipinos can hardly live without.
But since I moved here in Europe, I’ve already started eating rice occasionally, once or twice a week as a matter of fact. I’m now chowing down more on other carbs such as potatoes, pasta, or noodles.
Yet in a few occasions too, I’d just simply eat salad or vegetables. So coming across this new grain (or seed) did give me another healthier option.
