Ancient Grains + Greens

Some nights ya just don’t feel like making a big meal and that’s when this recipe comes in handy! It’s so simple, yet so satisfying. Quinoa is a complete protein which provides us with all the amino acids we need to fuel our muscles and give us energy. Plus, it’s a grain, so it contains lots of fiber to fill us up! I love adding greens to my quinoa as an added nutritional boost. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
