Honeybee Health: Quinoa Salad

securedownload-19

If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw I made this super easy quinoa salad this past weekend…

Its super simple, healthy and delish! Its a perfect salad to make ahead and have on hand for the week.

I love  Near East products! They are 100% natural and are so simple to make! You don’t have to think about what to season it with or using tons of oil as the seasons are already included! I made this Quinoa blend and added some fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and my FAVORITE feta from Traders….

This feta from Trader Joes with mediterranean herbs is SO yummy! I put it in my quinoa, on top of hummus, in frittatas and on salads!

I had a little left over today so i just added steamed broccoli to it and made some quick stuffed peppers for lunch! 
For the hubby I added some chicken sausage (because he can’t have a meal without some kind of protein 😉 and avocado… he loved it! I have been pinning some more quinoa recipes that I can’t wait to try out. Do you ladies have any quinoa recipes you love?!

    Once I got the gigantic quinoa bag at Costco- and eventually became sick of it! 😉 But when I did love it I used to make a big pot- some for din and some for breakfast. For breakfast I'd add milk, honey and raisins- and it was super tasty!

    I bought some quinoa from Trader Joe's a few weeks ago and still haven't found a recipe I want to make. I've seen a few blog posts about quinoa salads and I think I will start there. I LOVE avocado so I think this will be perfect for me : ) Thanks for the post!

    Hi Andee,
    I've always been so inspired by your clean eating except i dont know where to start or when to eat or if i'm tempted how to get rid of that temptation etc. Also, i'm on the run all day long so it sucks because i get off track easily. So can you do a blog post on clean eating and how to keep up with it?

    Thank you,
    Rue
