First things first, as always both are great choices when it comes to healthy eating. Although quinoa has over double the amount of fat of brown rice, it's protein super powers make it great for people trying to get more "real" protein in their diet and a fantastic staple for vegetarians. When it comes to cost brown rice wins hands down at £1.75 per kg compared to a wallet busting £7.34 per kg for quinoa. So is the extra protein really worth the extra cost? We're undecided!

After 3 years of excess at uni took a serious toll on my waistline and wellbeing, I found that a love for strength training, HIIT and spin classes were key to keeping me healthy and happy. I'm at the forefront of finding out and creating awesome stuff about health, fitness and happiness for our Movers and when I'm not at work I love nothing more than pizza and prosecco in the sun with friends. What motivates me? Knowing that life is short...
