Posted by on Jul 21, 2014 in Learning Corner | 0 comments

Quinoa Nutrition Facts What Is It? A quick search on the internet reveals several facts of this grain crop which is grown primarily for its edible seeds. Simply put, Quinoa, a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium) is a pseudo cereal (that is their seeds can be ground into flour and consumed) rather than a true cereal, as it is not a member of the true grass family. It is also closely related to species such as beetroot, spinach and tumbleweed which have shrub like growth. Where Does It Grow? It originated in the Andean region of Ecuador, Bolivia, Colombia and Peru, where it was domesticated 3,000 to 4,000 years ago for human consumption and found its place into the humble Indian household (albeit being an upper middle class commodity). It gained popularity and has been cultivated away from natural distribution in places like the United States, Australia and Japan to name a few. What are the nutritional benefits? Essential Amino Acids Quinoa seeds contain essential amino acids like lysine and acceptable quantities of calcium, phosphorus, and iron. A study showed that deficiency of essential amino acids leads to symptoms of nervousness, exhaustion, and dizziness to a greater or lesser extent and moderate consumption of Quinoa can help avoid such symptoms. Anti-Inflammatory Quinoa consists of a...

Food Conspiracy & Feta Cheese Demon

Food Conspiracy & Feta Cheese Demon © Vishy Dadsetan This is not the story of laboratories and scientists that for decades have managed to tap into the secret connection of your perception and brain to manipulate what you eat and how much. This is a personal story and much more devious. It happened a couple of years back. My days used to start around between 4 AM and 6 AM, and they end around midnight. I didn’t need much sleep I thought, disregarding the sluggishness I felt. I couldn’t see the errors in judgement that would have been obvious if I could think clearly. Around 10:30 P.M., I made myself a Feta cheese sandwich. But this was not an ordinary Feta, it was a part of the Feta demon. I had missed the headline news – “Feta Demon Escaped, Armed and Very Dangerous!’” The treacherous Feta demon had escaped its high-security glass and metal prison in Parkside Produce, traveled fifteen miles to my home, broken in and now hid in a low security plastic prison container in my refrigerator waiting. Its magical disguise was perfect. It looked, smelled and tasted like ordinary Feta cheese. It just didn’t feel like it when it hit my stomach. By that time, it was too late for me....
