Avocado Black Quinoa Salad

It can’t get more wholesome than this…Avocado Quinoa Salad .Two of my most favorite and most healthiest food’s of the world..together in one!

Quinoa is earthy,robust flavored superfood , Seeds are a great source of Iron and Protein . In earlier times it was called the mother of all grains . It’s gluten-free and consuming then drastically increases the Antioxidant and Nutrient Value of the diet lowing Blood Sugar and improving on Metabolic Health.As for Avocado , which also called the ‘Alligator Pear’ has way , way too many benefits to list . But then one I would like to highlight is that even though they are high on calories ; They are packed with Good-Fats or Monounsaturated Fat which are highly unlikely to be stored as Body-fat. And with these super foods I give you this simple recipe – Avocado Black Quinoa Salad.
