Quinoa Salad

Wondering what to eat at lunch? Here’s the solution: It’s a healthy eater’s dream: flavorful, chock-full of protein and veggies, satisfying and low in fat.

I usually make this quinoa recipe as a light lunch, but you can also serve it alongside other Asian dishes for dinner or make it a meal in itself by adding cooked shrimp, crab or lobster.

Quinoa is gluten free and it is perfect for people with gluten intolerances.

Celery is a great choice if you are watching your weight.

Aside from being weight loss friendly, kidney beans has a number of health benefits.

Enjoy the masterpiece you’ve just created!
