Quinoa Pomegranate Salad

Healthy food makes me feel better!  I made this salad and took it for my lunches during the week.  One day I added some grilled chicken and another day I added grilled fish.

You can’t go wrong with this powerhouse of super food ingredients – Quinoa and Pomegranate.  And you know what … I really did like it.  I especially like the bursts of juice, sweetness tart that the pomegranate delivers.  Like an explosion in your mouth.  Get cooking and get healthy!  Enjoy!
