Recipe of the Week: Colorful Quinoa Salad with Citrus Dressing

Here’s a recipe for you that will add some color to these dreary, winter days. Last week we learned that while no one food is going to boost your immune system, your gut LOVES fruits and veggies and this recipe is sure to keep those bugs happy. If you missed my post on building immunity, you can read that here!

This bright and fruity salad contains plenty of protein thanks to quinoa as its base. Quinoa is one of the only plant-based proteins that contains the nine essential amino acids that your body needs, making it a complete protein like all meats and animal products.

Here’s a tip for you: buy a fresh pomegranate and de-seed it yourself, instead of buying a cup of seeds at-the-ready. A little more time consuming, sure, but those pretty little gems will last much longer!
