Lemony Greek Quinoa Salad


2016/02/04 by nikkiledford

I don’t typically post a lot of grain-friendly recipes on this site, but I choose to include a few because I always want to support clean, nutritious, whole-food eating regardless of our respective “diets”. Some people just really jive with a more vegan/vegetarian approach and there are a bunch of great meal possibilities for you plant-based folks!

Here’s one of them that is perfectly suited for a quick lunch or a big weekend gathering! It also holds up well in the fridge for a few days so you can prep ahead of time or divvy it up among your weekday lunches!

For those who love quinoa AND meat, please feel free to chop up some chicken or add some cooked wild salmon to this for an extra boost of protein or Omega 3’s!

Here are some other quinoa salads to consider:

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
