Quinoa is very versatile to cook with. What's great about quinoa is that it is very nutritious, high in fiber, protein, and antioxidants. Here is my quinoa mix for the week. I meal prep enough to make 9 medium bowl servings for Monday through Friday. It lasts in the fridge perfectly fine! You can serve heated up or eat refrigerated.

My doctor told me to eat more fiber and someone told me to eat quinoa. I looked for some in the grocery store, but couldn't find any. What I need to know is where in the store is it located? I'm also looking for some quinoa recipes, maybe something that I can cook in my crockpot.
