Food Synergy: Cooking Grains

COOKING TIP! Next time you cook your quinoa, or any other grain, throw in some garlic or onion into the water too. It mitigates the “anti-nutrient” effect of phytic acid (a potent anti-cancer phytonutrient that binds with certain minerals).

When prepared with onion or garlic, the bioavailability of iron, zinc, and other minerals in grains is significantly enhanced.

And it makes the house smell so yummy!
