    Hi Ross,

    Can you tell me if quinoa is alkaline?
    For years I’ve eaten quinoa with diced avocados and tomatoes on top with a bit of Braggs and salt sprinkled on top. It’s really wonderful.

    Thanks for your help and info.

      Hey Janet – yep, quinoa is fine. It’s not super alkaline, probably more neutral – but absolutely fine to keep eating!

    Nice looking recipe yet again Ross.

    btw if you eat quinoa raw, then it needs to be soaked (ideally overnight) to neutralise the antinutrients that it contains. Soaking overnight in warm salted water will effectively start the sprouting process and you’ll likely end up with an even more nutritious seed anyway 😉

    Looks really good , but not 100% raw. Like the 100% raw ideas. Thanks

      Hi Jack

      You can make it without the quinoa, or have it with raw quinoa if you like it crunchy!
