Quinoa, One of the healthiest most versitile grains!

What a wonderful wheat free, gluten free food this is.    You can eat it as a breakfast or lunch or dinner, make enough ahead of time so it is easily transferred into wonderful meals in minutes!    One of my clients commented she opens the fridge and whatever is in there can be mixed with quinoa.

Here are some ideas:

For Breakfast:                                                                      For Lunch:
Walnuts                                                                                   Scallions/Pearl Onions
Raisins                                                                                    Feta Cheese
Gogi Berries                                                                           Butternut Squash
Maple Syrup                                                                           Nuts
Strawberries or Banana's or any fruit                                     Cabbage
Scrambled Egg                                                                       Cherry Tomatos
Pancetta                                                                                  Cucumber
                                                                                                Chicken or Fish

I have a favorite balsamic from Ballston Lake Apiaries in Ballston Lake, NY.  It is the Balsamic & Honey Concentrate that works wonderfully with the Lunch Quinoa.  See below:

Ballston Lake Apiaries Quinoa with Balsamic & Honey Concentrate

Cook Quinoa as directed on box, while hot, add in Balsamic Concentrate (amount to your liking) and let sit until cools to room temperature.    At room temperature, add to Qunioa 1/2 cup chopped cherry tomatos, 1/8 cup walnuts, 1/8 cup chopped red onion or scallions, 1/4 cup cilantro 1/4 cup feta cheese.  Mix all together adding more Balsamic Concentrate if desired.    YUM!!!  This keeps in the fridge for a couple days.
