Quinoa has a glycemic index of 51 which is in the green zone for followers of the GI diet. I am now on this glycemic index diet having lost a lot of weight on the crazy lighter life diet.
Quinoa is easy to include into any diet but because of its low GI and other health benefits, it is one of the best foods to eat regularly in your diet.
Quinoa can be combined with vegetables, fruit and other grains to produce delicious meals and snacks. The Low GI diet is great in itself but with quinoa in the diet it makes it even better. Quinoa is filling and full of protein.
