LUNCH QUICK FIX


Lately I have become hooked on quinoa after a friend introduced me several months ago to the great health benefits and tasty flavor.  The terrific thing about it is that I can make a lot of it at once and it keeps in the fridge for a few days with no nasty repercussions. I actually prefer eating it cold for lunch, with a variety of ingredients, depending on what I have at the time.  Tossing in some smoked salmon, spinach, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, slivered and roasted almonds, whatever. I also like to add a little splash of apple cider vinegar and a pinch of kosher salt and I am good to go.  Makes a healthy, filling and satisfying lunch without any "eater's remorse".  Do you like quinoa? How do you eat yours'?
