I really can't believe it's already October! As tough as this year has been for me it has been going by so fast. Today I wanted to share with you all one of my go to recipes. Quinoa has been a staple in my diet for the last few years and this Southwest Quinoa salad recipe is something I make all the time. It is so quick and easy to make. It also is so filling just on its own.
I started eating Quinoa few years ago when I learned that wheat and I don't go together. Being a vegetarian I couldn't just cut out wheat and only eat vegetables because of my sugar levels and other health complications so I found quinoa to be a good replacement and the right amount of protein I needed. There are other benefits to Quinoa that drew me to it. It has iron, B-vitamins, fibre and contains essential amino acids.
So I began to find ways to incorporate it into my daily routine and normally eat it after my morning yoga. In fact I love quinoa so much that I even found a way to include it in my thanksgiving dinner last year! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Its refreshing, zesty, and filling!
