Food Combining At It’s Finest

Test Subtitle

This is by far my favourite salad. It’s included in my mild detox week, it’s in a lot of my clients’ meal plans and I eat this at least 3 times a month or more. There is no words for me to describe how much I flippin love this Energy Bowl. Nothing finishes off a meal like a portion of quinoa. Aside from the fact that it is considered a complete protein, it’s low in fat, high in fibre and full of vitamins – this little minion of the seed family packs an incredible flavour addition to any dish. Combine it with some black beans, spices and a touch of corn and you’ve just acquired a protein power house of yumminess.  Next time someone says veg heads don’t get enough protein – toss this recipe at them. 


Make up your quinoa mixture at the beginning of the week, throw it in the fridge and you’ve got a nutritious, pre-prepped meal for days. Top it on your salad, eat it with some steamed veggies, brush your teeth with it if you want (which would be odd -so maybe don’t) Just make sure you have some in your fridge at all times… I give you the:
