I know you’re all ready for a little cleanse after those wild holiday parties, right?
Yup. That’s what I thought.
I read your mind.
And I created this easy cleansing quinoa salad recipe with you in mind, of course.
It’s one of a kind.
It’s a simple dish.
And O’ so flavorful.
It’s one of those dishes you could eat for lunch with a few slices of bread, serve for dinner with grilled chicken breast or enjoy tomorrow morning as leftovers with a poached egg and jam.
It’s naturally sweet and filled with lots of detoxing ingredients that are sure to get your body back in gear after eating too many bon bon’s and drinking way too much eggnog.
Don’t worry- you’ll get back on track- and you can easily reset your body with clean foods like this.
Take a scoop and have a bite. You’re gunna love it.
