Detox Quinoa Salad

the pure life


This Detox Quinoa Salad is a great addition to any diet in 2016. Quinoa is an awesome little “seed” that packs a ton of protein to keep us full and satisfied for longer. Mixed with detoxing herbs and veggies, this low fat dish makes a great bulk recipe as well! I’m very excited to continue to create easy, healthy recipes for you all this year. Need more inspiration?
