I’m thrilled to be getting the chance to review more of GoGO Quinoa’s deliciously healthy products! I first heard of GoGo Quinoa when I was opening my January Little Life Box. At the time I was just starting to get involved with completely converting my lifestyle into a healthy one, and quinoa was never really part of my meal plans. To be honest, I didn’t even really know what quinoa is, but GoGo Quinoa gives a good description: Quinoa, an ancient “pseudo-grain”, was consumed by the Incas.

It’s really hard to convert your entire life to eatingRead More →
