Quinoa is classified with the rest of the grains but did you know it’s not actually a grain – it’s a seed. It’s been around for over 6,000 years, originating in the Andean region of South America. The Incas held the crop to be sacred and referred to it as chisaya mama, meaning mother of all grains.
