Though it is considered a whole grain, quinoa is technically the seed of a plant related to spinach and beets. Quinoa is very high in protein, and the protein is the highest quality because it contains all the amino acids your body needs to produce muscles and tissues and lots more. It is high in magnesium, which can help people with migraines and chronic headaches because it helps relax blood vessels. It is also a gluten free grain.
