Protein Power!

Hi there!  I’m so glad you are here.

A couple of weeks ago I talked about protein and how vegans get enough to sustain themselves.  Today I will share with you a great salad that I created the other day just working from listening to my taste buds.  I think you’ll find it to be sweet, crunchy, satiating and tasty.  Its main ingredient is quinoa (keen-wa) which is packed with protein.  Quinoa is a grain-like crop grown specifically for the seed of the plant.  As a great source of fiber and other nutrients, quinoa also provides essential amino acids, calcium, phosphorus and iron.

I hope you’ll give this salad a try.  Click on the picture below to be taken to the recipe.
