Whether you're a vegetarian or not, we love the idea of going meatless once or twice a week (or more, if you're into it!!). And guess what?! Vegetarians discovered long ago that meat is certainly not the only way to get sufficient protein into your diet. One of our favorite ways to replace meat is with the protein-packed (and fiber-packed, too!) quinoa.

Quinoa is most commonly referred to as a grain, but did you know it's actually a seed? Not only that, but it's a complete protein - which means that (unlike most other plant-based protein sources) it provides sufficient amounts of the essential amino acids (source).
