If you’re a vegan or vegetarian or someone who is just trying to eat a little more consciously, you probably consume quinoa fairly often. You probably consider things like sustainability, water and energy footprint and in general are aware of the effect your choices make on the lives of thousands around the world.

If appeals to you, this is one video you don’t wanna miss!

  1. Hi, Jovanka. I eat quinoa. I’m a vegetarian and I eat gluten free due to having celiac disease. It’s a staple of mine. But I could certainly reduce my intake based on what you’ve shared here.

    • I do too and I am reducing my consumption by 15% or so until other countries start producing it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here!
