Quinoa was once touted as “the gold of the Incas” for its phenomenal health benefits. A genuine “superfood”, quinoa has been known to help with cardiovascular health problems, migraines, gluten allergies, breast cancer, weight loss and much more.

Cooking with Quinoa For Dummies (Wiley; January 2013; Paper), by Cheryl Forberg, bestselling author and nutritionist for NBC’s The Biggest Loser, teaches readers how to incorporate this delicious and versatile food into their everyday lifestyle. Forberg provides information on how to properly prepare quinoa, how it benefits everyone’s health and fights disease and how to substitute it into family-favourite meals.

"I look at quinoa as the scrumptious solution,” says Forberg. “It checks all the boxes – it’s versatile, gluten-free, requires little to no processing and is extraordinarily healthy. It can transform your life.”

Cooking with Quinoa For Dummies offers over 140 gluten-free recipes, including Thai Quinoa-Coconut Chicken Soup, Quinoa Currant Hotcakes, Grilled Chili Beef with Quinoacado Relish and Quinoa Chocolate Cake.

Cheryl Forberg is available for interviews and can speak about:
