Have you Tried Eating the Rainbow?

If not, try adding this quinoa radish salad into your weekly rotation.

Ever heard of the saying eat the rainbow? This vibrant colored quinoa salad adds a big punch to your daily health routine and includes red and green vegetables that makes a beautiful colored meal. Proven to help fight inflammation, high in fiber, gluten free and low on the glycemic index quinoa is a super food that you should put into your weekly rotation. This recipe is adapted from a version my sister in law recommended to me off Food 52, but I've changed it up and substituted quinoa for the couscous and added a few more veggies. This has been a staple in my house while we've all been working from home during COVID. Great for lunch or serve as a side with dinner.
