Quinoa Salad | vegan, high protein

Whoever says you can’t consume “enough” protein on a plant-based diet is in the wrong and has probably never tried quinoa.

💡 Quinoa has all the essential amino acids and is thus a source of complete protein, making it a perfect food to add to your diet if you’re looking to build muscle and lose body fat.
