Delicious and Nutritious Lunch special ! Quinoa with Beet Yogurt on the side

Hello Everyone !

Its been a while, isn’t it? There are so many things I want to share with you all and today I am able to get(read as “grab” lol) some me-time. So, without wasting further time, I will get straight to the point. This week onwards, I will share my lunch menus.Whats special about these menus is that they keep you full, energetic, suppress the need for post-lunch naps and last but not the least, you wouldn’t be running for coffee soon after your lunch. Yay !

If the above reasons are enough , do try the recipe ASAP 😀

Quinoa – put in simple words – is a wonder. It is a  power-house of vitamins, it has low glycemic-index, gluten-free and high in protein with all essential amino acids.
