This is my second recipe with Quinoa! My first on this blog was Quinoa Chicken Cherry Salad which I love, but sometimes I just don’t want chicken, know what I mean?
Variety is my middle name! Staying healthy, eating well, exercising, it requires work friends. Can’t eat the same foods all the time, too monotonous for me and for you!
Quinoa is so versatile you can add whatever you like and it will be fantastic.
So here’s my other favorite toppings I shared one day with a friend for lunch. We each enjoyed our yummy salad, so filling! The best part was we both had an already- made, healthy lunch for the next day, which for busy momma’s is PRICELESS!
