Most people lump quinoa into the grain category, but it is actually a seed. This seed in particular gives you all of your essential amino acids, so it is a GREAT source of protein. The protein in quinoa will also slow the release of sugar into the blood from quinoa’s carb content. Don’t forget to bulk up this quinoa salad with any vegetables you have in the fridge for some color (aka antioxidants)!
**Optional: add any leftover veggies in your refrigerator for variety.
