Quinoa Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

January 30, 2018lifepatisserie

It’s that time of the year when you have a lot of cold, cough and all those wonderful things. The weather here has been very strange, it is unusually warm but then you get very cold days in between, which results in that it is easier to get sick. All last week my son was sick at home and this week I am a little bit under the weather. So what do you do, you get all the best nutritious from the food you can get and that means choosing wisely what to have. Don’t get me wrong I normally try to stay on the healthy stuff but when the situation is like this I am extra careful with what I eat.

Who doesn’t love a good salad and I’m seriously obsessed with this quinoa salad, it has delicious flavors, and it’s so simple to make. Not to mention how healthy quinoa is, it is a great source of iron, fiber and magnesium. This salad is packed with some of my favorite stuff, such as sweet potatoes, avocado and pomegranate. Ingredients that are so good for you and that will keep you fuller for longer.

I used chicken in this version but I have also made it many times without, so for a vegan version you just leave out the chicken and it is just as good.
