Quinoa Salad

-about two cups of quinoa (for this recipe I used red quinoa) 
-1 apple (chopped)
-1/2 red bell pepper
-1/2 yellow bell pepper
-red grape tomatoes
-golden raisins
-dried cranberries 

Remembering that it is very important to have as many colors as possible in our diet, this little salad definitely gets the job done and is perfect for the summer! The quinoa provides the protein your body needs, you have your greens (arugula has a bitter taste), and you get some reds, yellows, and some fruit to spice things up! In the future I'll probably try to throw some nuts in the mix as well. 

As with all other recipes, feel free to make it your own and change the recipe as you wish. 

Happinize On
