Not only convenience and budget that office workers need, but healthiness also became a key that people concern about for their lunch today.
What’s the greater option than Quinoa, the world’s most popular healthy food?
Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is a grain loaded with thousands of trace nutrients, which why the UN named it a “super crop.” It has become rather trendy amongst health conscious people due to it being naturally gluten-free and high in fiber. Quinoa also has high-quality protein compared with most grains, making it a good choice for weight loss. Quinoa is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals and super easy to make.

Quinoa is known to boost energy and metabolism due to its high fiber and protein content. It also has fewer calories compared to other foods at the same volume. Quinoa can help you feel fuller longer, helping you avoid mid-day hunger and unhealthy snacking.
Not only is it healthy, quinoa is incredibly easy to incorporate into your lunch and cooks in just 15 minutes!
Nevertheless, taste is still as important as health, a statement that has recently been backed with research. According to the study’s findings, “Taste exerts the biggest influence on people's food choices and many believe that healthy foods don't taste good.” With quinoa, this is not the case.
We tend to keep it simple with our favorite lunches, typically opting for sandwiches, salads, and soup. Healthy lunches can also be simple and delicious, whether you make them yourself or add a few ingredients. Quinoa is a versatile grain that works well with our favorite lunches from sandwiches and salads, to soups.
If Typical Lunches Are Easy, Quick and We Are Familiar With, Let Them Be Your Favorite Lunches!
Staying safe with sandwiches doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Redesign your favorite sandwich simply by using high protein quinoa bread instead of white bread. Its soft texture, slight crunchiness, and nutty flavor won’t leave you missing white bread at all!
You can also replace what’s inside the sandwich easily with quinoa. Instead of opting for a cliché and meaty filling, give quinoa meatballs a try. They’re vegetarian too! (Leftovers can also be mixed with pasta or eaten all by themselves.)
It’s Time to Get Multicultural Salad
Forget cabbage and repetitive greens, use quinoa as your base! Try an international theme such as Mediterranean, Asian or Mexican to create a flavorful and filling lunch. Feel free to add your favorite things to incorporate your own flair such as tofu or extra meat. We like adding herbs, spices, hot sauce, or flavored vinegars for a flavor boost without the calories.
Not only are quinoa salads super healthy, they’re also easy to make. Just add your ingredients into a mixing bowl or skillet and let the quinoa soak in the flavors. Enjoy hot or cold!
Inventive Takes on the Classic Soup
Plenty of nutrients can make it in one pot! Quinoa can down with anything you want to eat it in, soup is no exception either. Try swapping noodles soup for quinoa or adding quinoa to your favorite traditional minestrone soups to make the soup more solid, you will stay fuller for a long work day.
Get creative and enjoy a tasty dose of quinoa!
