As we head to the ever so lovely “bikini season” a.k.a dreaded season a.k.a.a. i-wish-i-wouldn’t-have-eaten-that-last-cookie-now-i-need-to-go-run-3-miles season; its time to get serious about healthy eating! A great way to start is by using quinoa in your recipes.

What is Quinoa? Well, it is essentially a seed that is gluten-free and whole grain.  When cooked up tastes like a cross between oatmeal and rice. It is high in protein, low in fat, has a good amount of fiber and iron, and contains no gluten.

In order to get you started on your gluten-free Quinoa adventure here are 20 amazingly light, easy, and healthy Quinoa Recipes. They range from desserts to burgers to salads and even breakfast foods. I hope you enjoy. Let me know which one was your favorite!
