Quinoa Salad

Hello!!!

I made Quinoa salad for dinner, and it was so easy and simple yet delicious, so I thought I  had to chare it with my dear  OYL readers:) 

Quinoa is an excellent grain alternative. It is gluten-free and considered easy to digest. Quinoa (like oats) contains a balanced set of essential amino acids, making it a complete protein source.

If you suffering from migraines, add quiona into your diet . “Quinoa is a good source of magnesium, a mineral that helps relax blood vessels, preventing the constriction and rebound dilation characteristic of migraines”.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup freshly cooked quinoa
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2TS hemp oil ( or Olive oil)
  • handful basil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • sea salt & pepper
  • raw sheep feta cheese (it is optional. I bought it at my local farmers market today, so I added it to my salad. You can substitute to Olives)

Direction

Finely chop tomatoes, peppers and basil. Place it in a large bowl. Add lemon juice, oil, salt, pepper . Add quinoa and feta cheese. Ready!
