I honestly love this recipe, however, I am not sure that this actually fits into my overall goal / objective. But I do like this!!! My overall goal/objective is to decrease my triglycerides as well as my weight. The quinoa has a lot of fiber and that helps, but the overall sugar is 24.24 g. I love the protein content also. I am the only one in the house right now that will eat quinoa, so for me, this was a tasty break.
