Interview – Carolyn Hemming (Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood)

Carolyn Hemming and Patricia Green are sisters who share a passion for healthy living. Their commitment to health and wellness led to the publication of their first cookbook, Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood, where they explore the nutritional benefits and versatility of cooking with quinoa. Raised in a household that established healthy eating habits at an early age, Carolyn and Patricia continue to follow the path of ‘food as medicine’ laid out by their mother.

Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen wah’) is considered to be one of the world’s healthiest foods. Yet despite its existence for over 5,000 years this seed is only just starting to gain popularity in North America. It takes less time to cook than rice, and keeps in the refrigerator for up to a week.

This book is full of beautiful photographs and easy to follow recipes that are conveniently rated as gluten-free, kid-approved, or vegetarian. You will find quinoa based dishes for special occasions, weekday dinners, breakfast and lunch, dessert, and even baby food! Included is an interesting history of quinoa along with a breakdown of its nutritional benefits.
