With a quinoa shortage depriving native Bolivians and Peruvians of their staple grain, we started thinking more about serving quinoa in California. At HEYDAY, we don't believe it's a sustainable practice to serve vegetables that have been shipped halfway around the world. Why would we serve grains grown thousands of miles away? 

So we found two delicious, nutrient-rich grains grown organically right here in California: millet and amaranth. They're just as packed with protein and beneficial vitamins and they don't have to be shipped halfway across the Americas. We now feature these local super-grains in our Moroccan Chickpea Salad. Stop in and try some today!
