Granted, too much of any sweet treat is not the best for us. However, if you are going to indulge then why not try to get as much nutrition out of it as possible. This recipe was inspired by a recipe from Live Better America (www.livebetteramerica.com). I replaced the white sugar with honey and the canola oil with pureed avocado. (Yes, you heard right). Don't worry if the batter has a green hue...it won't look that way after it is cooked.
Quinoa, Red Pepper and Cucumber Salad with Avocado and Lime
Quinoa is a grain that has a nutty flavor. It is great to use in salads, such as this recipe. It’s light but filling. Make a big batch and use it for lunch.
