If you have never tried this tasty grain (which is actually a seed!) – the time to start is now. As one of the onlygrain like foods that is a complete protein rich in amino acids, quinoa is also easy to digest; low on the glycemic index and suitable for most gluten sensitive people.
When cooking quinoa it is important to rinse thoroughly in a fine strainer to eliminate any bitter taste. You can cook quinoa the same way you cook rice. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add one cup of quinoa. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes with lid on top of pot. Remove and let sit for 3 minutes and then fluff with fork. See recipes below.

SHULMAN WEIGHT LOSS: SUCCESS STORIES
Lost: 47 pounds!
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
age 49 – down 38 pounds!
Since starting the Shulman Weight Loss Plan, I have more energy and fell much better about myself. My sleep has also improved and I do not feel like I hit a wall in the middle of the day.
age 37 – down 37 pounds!
Since following Shulman Weight Loss Clinic's hormonal approach, I feel lighter, stronger and more energized. My waist size has gone down over 5 inches which has greatly decreased health risks that may have been lurking. I also now walk into a room with my head up again and my shoulders back. I have received many comments from co-workers saying I look more "alive" and that I have the "sparkle in my eyes" back.
