With the weather warming up it is time to BRING ON THE SALADS. Not just for you but for your kids too.

Quinoa is high up there as far as trendy foods but it is not just hype. This “super grain” really is special. Like other whole grains it is a great source of key nutrients such as phytochemicals, antioxidants, B vitamins, Vitamin-E, magnesium, iron and fibre but it is also a good source of protein and it is gluten free.
