1. Quinoa Pasta

Even though quinoa is technically a seed, it is often used as a grain-like food. You can ground the seed into flour for pasta, which contains more protein than traditional flour. Quinoa is also rich in iron and magnesium; not to mention, it is gluten-free. The European Journal of Nutrition published research that links quinoa pasta to lower triglyceride and blood sugar levels compared to other gluten-free kinds of pasta. Keep in mind that you should always check the label; the pasta should contain only quinoa rather than rice or corn substitute with little quinoa.
