Amaranth - Power Substitute Rice, Porridge, Congee
Amaranth, similar to quinoa , contain essential amino acids that are nearly complete for plant-based protein - those essential amino acids that our body can't make and needs to get through food.
Most fruits and vegetables do not contain a complete set of amino acids (in proteins), thus make sure you eat an extensive range of vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains and seeds, especially when you are a vegetarian .
Another power congee of mine: red quinoa , amaranth, lentils, green beans. Amaranth is high in fiber and nutrient-rich, with a high concentration of lysine, an essential amino acid - makes it a complete protein .
