#FoodieFriday: Easy Fruity Quinoa Salad ๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฅ—

January 12, 2018
Quinoa could well be the original superfood. Native to the Andes, it was sacred to the Incas, and itโ€™s easy to see why โ€“ itโ€™s gluten-free, packed with fibre, B vitamins and the antioxidant vitamins C and E, and itโ€™s a great source of minerals, including iron, zinc, magnesium and calcium. But probably the most unusual thing about it โ€“ apart from the fact that itโ€™s actually pronounced โ€˜keenwaโ€™ โ€“ is that itโ€™s one of the very few โ€˜completeโ€™ plant proteins, providing all the amino acids we need.
Oh, and obviously our fruity quinoa breakfast tastes great, too โ€“ what a way to start the day!
1 packet of The Food Doctor Quinoa Easy Grains
30g of Mixed Nuts
50g of Berries
1 Banana
1 Kiwi
1/2 of a Lemon
30g of Greek Yoghurt

Method

  1. Slice the banana and kiwi.
  2. Toss the quinoa with the blueberries, sliced banana and kiwi fruit.
  3. Sprinkle with the mixed nuts, and top with the juice from half a lemon.
  4. Serve just over half for breakfast today; and cover the remainder with cling film and keep in the fridge for later in the week.
  5. For the 2nd Serving: Mix 30g of Full-Fat Greek yoghurt with the remaining fruity quinoa and serve immediately.

Enjoy this fab recipe, ladies!
