Summer is coming up thick and fast so I am hitting the gym more. I try to eat more protein-rich foods and quinoa is a brilliant protein source for us plant based gym-goers, so here I am sharing a clean eating quinoa lentil salad recipe.

Quinoa is a brilliant grain packed with many essential vitamins and minerals as well as protein. Quinoa is a grain crop that is grown for its edible seeds. It is pronounced KEEN-wah. There are three main types: white, red and black. The black quinoa contains all the goodness of regular quinoa with the addition of vitamin E, which is known to help protect our cells from damage by free radicals.
