The e-News is designed to share events and activities going on in the BASD and the Lehigh Valley and show how we are #builtbybethlehem. It is our hope that you find it informative outlining BASD student and staff achievements, BASD opportunities, and area events taking place.

The ABC Tips - Q
Quinoa is a complete protein, which means it contains all nine amino acids our body cannot make. Quinoa contains fiber, which promotes good digestion and will help you stay full longer. It contains a high amount of lysine, which is needed for tissue growth and repair. Quinoa is a great source of antioxidants, which helps to prevent some cancers. In addition, quinoa contains heart healthy fats, which are known to be cardio-protective. There are 120 varieties of quinoa. Try quinoa as a side dish, in stuffed peppers, or add it to a cold salad.
