More early morning grain contemplation. Side note: quinoa has been cultivated in the Andes for some 5000 years or so, and it has one of the most complete protein profiles of any grain, plus it’s chock full of iron & B vitamins and other stuff that’s good for you. (Aren’t I the smartypants? I only know this stuff because I work in a natural foods co-op…)

I went for a no protein (except what was in the quinoa) dinner tonight and made a greek style salad, served with some pita and szatski. Good tasting.
