Healthy Monday!: Quinoa and grilled vegetables

20150407_204515

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! My monday’s diner was actually made of something I had never tried before: Quinoa! I’ve read everywhere those great healthy recipes and they always had quinoa in them. I love gluten, I can’t get rid of it completely but I wanted to try to do a day a week that is gluten free. And it’s not only that quinoa is gluten free but it’s also high in magnesium, potassium, calcium, fiber and vitamins B and E. Quinoa sounds to me like a magic ingredient. I have to admit that it is not my favorite ingredients taste wise. It’s kind of bitter, and I’m not a fan…

I grilled some baby corn and broccoli with paprika on a pan to join it with a give an extra taste to erase the original taste of the quinoa. Baby corn is also high in potassium as well as folic acid, and is good when undertaking a low carb diet. Broccoli lowers cholesterol levels and is known for it’s detox potential. It is high in vitamins A and K.

When I don’t like the taste of a product, I usually add spices to it. It’s the best way to alter the taste. Plus, the more spices you eat in a day, the better it is for your diet!

Hope you enjoyed today’s recipe. Tell me all about your recipes with quinoa in the comments.

Love, Jen xx
