Welcome to Quinoa Cookbook!
Our mission is to inspire healthy eating while reducing the impact of food choices on the environment. “Quinoa Cookbook: Deliciously Benefiting Your Health and Planet” will inform the reader of quinoa’s origin, nutritional value, health and environmental impacts, and most importantly how to use it in great meals! The recipes and cooking tips will be submitted by celebrity, local, and amateur chefs. All proceeds from the sales and marketing of the book will be donated to charity to further these goals.
Americans consume more meat and sugar than is recommended by health guidelines, while eating drastically fewer fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. This imbalanced diet is causing obesity and weight-related illnesses such as Type 2 Diabetes at an alarming rate while exacting an enormous toll on those suffering and on society. America’s diet also consumes more land, fossil fuels and fresh water than would be required by a healthy one. As our population grows and the world begins to eat more like Americans, these problems will almost certainly become much worse unless we take action now. Foods like quinoa that taste great and deliver high amounts of protein and nutrients per serving offer the world a brighter future.
