DALLAS (KDAF) — The new year is here and if you are trying to eat better, quinoa is a great superfood that is growing in popularity.

Monday, Jan. 16, is National Quinoa Day, a day to celebrate the delicious superfood that has been around for thousands of years.

“Originally cultivated in South America, the popularity of the grain spread in the U.S. as a gluten-free alternative to wheat and wheat-based dishes. The popularity of quinoa has only increased, and now, it’s cultivated everywhere, including Europe, and India. It is also being considered as a solution for world hunger. National Quinoa Day celebrates this superfood and its potential to support people who cultivate it,” as the website states.
