Strawberry-Avocado Quinoa Salad

Quinoa pronounced (keen-wa) - have you tried it? It been all the rage and like kale, going from the "crunchy-granola" dinner tables to restaurants and dinner tables everywhere.

Packed full of protein and carbs, it makes a great main dish if you're vegan or vegetarian - or a side dish for the meat-eaters. 

I personally, prefer it as a salad - there's a reason my Fresh Mama Quinoa Salad is one of my most popular recipes. The quinoa is so versatile, soaks up the flavors, fills you up and you can prep it 4-5 days ahead of time. So, if clean-eating's your game, then quinoa should be on the menu!
