This gluten-free Greek quinoa is delicious, easy to make, healthy and perfect for meal prep!
I have been very, very into quinoa lately. Which is interesting, because it’s not really something I ever eat. I always have some in my pantry, but I make it maybe once or twice a year.
But these last few weeks I’ve just been really wanting some damn quinoa. And you know the thing about cravings?
It’s often your body’s way of telling you what it needs.
Don’t get me wrong, if you’re really craving a chocolate cake or you crave sweets all day long, that’s a good indication you have some sort of gut dysfunction or gut dysbiosis (high levels of bad bacteria, low levels of good bacteria).
But if you’re craving salt, fish, greens, nuts, even dark chocolate – it’s a good indication that your body needs something in that particular food.
So when I started craving quinoa, I decided I might as well make some seriously delicious quinoa salad. And what better way to have it than Greek?
Greek food is my favorite food.
