Rice is a mainstay for many dinners, either served as a side, underneath teriyaki chicken, or in soups. White rice has little nutritional value compared to the superfood quinoa. Quinoa is a complete protein packed with vitamins and minerals. Instead of using rice during your next meal, replace it with quinoa for a healthier alternative.
The Chicago Tribune stated that research published by The NPD Group, Inc., a large market research company that monitors consumer purchase trends nationwide, indicates that more people are making their own lunches instead of going out to eat during the day due to rising restaurant prices. The decline in lunch traffic has been seen for a decade as more office workers sign-in from home. (Pajama-clad telecommuters are less likely to schedule business lunches.) Even the distraction of online shopping was credited for the decline, because it leads to fewer breaks for food. Weekday lunch traffic fell 7 percent.
