If you love fruit, honey and lemon, you will love a bowl of this Sweet Quinoa Fruit Salad! What better way to either start the day or enjoy the day.
I have a sweet tooth! Whenever I eat something savory, I feel like I need a bit of sweetness right after. It used to be candy or cakes, but after I started eating cleaner, I stopped baking. Especially now that the season is full of naturally sweet fruits, there is no need for cake.
After I started to incorporate much more fruit into my diet, I found that I don’t crave sugar as much as I used to. With this sweet quinoa fruit salad, you will get all the sweetness you desire for significantly fewer calories than cookies, candy, or cake.
This salad contains a good source of protein in the quinoa. Besides that, the berries are good for keeping you mentally sharp. And on top of those benefits, mint is full of antioxidants.
