Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted II Denis Waitley


What is complete protein ?
Protein is made up of 20 amino acids out if which 11 are produced by the body and the remaining are to be taken from diet.
For non vegetarians there are a lot of choices for complete protein but for vegetarian the choices are less.
Quinoa the complete plant based protein !
Most plant based foods are not complete protein they miss in one or the other essential amino acids except for Quinoa, It is the only plant based food that has all the essential amino acids.
Being a complete protein the quinoa is considered a super food. It is highly rich in lysine which is pretty much lacking in vegan foods. Also it has mithionine and histidine making it an excellent source for plant based protein.
Other nutritional facts of quinoa
Apart from being rich in protein it is high in fiber, the amount of fiber in quinoa is much more than that in brown rice. Fiber present in quinoa helps in reducing the risk of diabetes.
Considering other available grains , Quinoa is highly rich in minerals and antioxidants and provides more magnesium, iron,fiber and zinc.
Bottom line:
Being extremely nutritious and rich in antioxidants and minerals, It is definitely a healthy addition to diet.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
