Diet Advice – Healthy Quinoa Salad by Zuzana

For my lunch and dinner I prefer light meals that are easy and fast to prepare. This cold salad is one of my favorite recipes. It is a very light meal with an exotic taste, loaded with protein and vitamins. These are the ingredients that you will need to make the salad: quinoa, grilled chicken breasts, celery, crunchy apples, grapes, onion, curry, turmeric, brown sugar, olive oil, salt and lime juice. 
I started to cook with quinoa grain because it’s light, easy to digest, full of high quality protein and you can use to for deserts, soups, salads or any other recipe you can think of. Quinoa has many health benefits. It is a good source of magnesium, and since low dietary levels of magnesium are connected to increased rates of hypertension, heart disease and heart arrhythmia’s, quinoa can provide a boost to your cardiovascular health. Quinoa is also loaded with the amino acid lysine which is a key component for tissue growth and repair. 
Turmeric also known as Haldi, is a spice that is widely used in India. It has a long list of health benefits that includes being a natural liver detoxifier, and potentially being able to help with fat metabolism and weight management. I hope you will enjoy this recipe. 
Best,
Zuzana.
