quinoa is quite good.. I put it in the breakfast cereal bars that I make and when I make oatmeal raisin cookies now I add quinoa to it...

Quinoa is a tasty grain that is no more difficult to cook than rice, just that we're pretty much unfamiliar with it.

Tempeh is fermented tofu. I have never been able to develop a taste for it, tho I like most other fermented foods. (can you say cheese? )

It can be very healthy, but imho it is important to know how the calf it comes from was raised. Body toxins are thrown off to the liver, and if the animal in question is not pasture raised / free range, it is very possible that many of those natural toxins were not thrown off.

Wow. What a great list! Thanks so much for sharing. Can't wait to show that to my boyfriend. He's convinced himself that Wendy's bacon burgers are the healthiest food in the world. Yet somehow they're mysteriously absent from that list...hmmm...
