One of the world's healthiest foods, quinoa contains a perfect balance of all eight essential amino acids, and is a great source of protein, making it an increasingly popular food choice for those looking to incorporate "superfoods" into their everyday diets. Gluten-free, wheat-free, and nutrient-packed, quinoa is ideal for those who are health-conscious, vegetarian, and/or physically active, as well as for those with gluten intolerance, wheat allergies, and other digestive disorders.

Quinoa has become a regular addition on the breakfast menu at HideAway Haven.

Quinoa with its nutty taste and chewy texture makes a delicious hot porridge like breakfast.  Perfect for a winter morning.  It not only tastes good but is good for you.  Quinoa has a high protein content, low GI, is a source of complex carbohydrates and non-dairy calcium content it is also a good brain food with 15% RDA of iron.  Quinoa also contains impressive quantities of potassium, magnesium and zinc, minerals that are crucial for heart, nerve and muscle function.
