Super Good Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

This 5 ingredient, gluten free, healthy lunch…. is amazing! AND so easy to make/take to school!

Here’s what you’ll need…

– Quinoa

– Cherry Tomatoes

– Cucumber

– Goat Cheese

– Ranch Dressing

And here’s why it rocks…

Quinoa is a great gluten-free source of protein, iron, and fiber! It’s quick to make (cooks in about 20 minutes) and is super flavourful way to get a serving of healthy whole grains into you!

Tomatoes have been referred to as a “functional food,”… a food that goes beyond basic need. Tomatoes also play a role in preventing chronic disease while also providing Vitamin C & K!

Cucumber is a good source of potassium, vitamin C, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamin B1. They also contain the important nail health-promoting mineral silica!

Goat cheese is easier on the human digestive system and lower in calories, cholesterol and fat than other cheeses. It’s also a good source of calcium, protein, vitamin A, vitamin K, and phosphorus!

A little ranch dressing (in moderation)… just makes it taste even more yummy!
