Recipe

Happy New Year! It feels like forever since I have posted a recipe. With the holidays, lots of round-up posts, the launch of the new low carb meal plans (in addition to the regular and vegetarian), and taking a mini-break to relax between Christmas and New Years it seems like ages since we talked about recipes. So what better way to dive into the new year and new recipes with a delicious, nutrient packed salad made with quinoa, butternut squash, and pomegranate. It makes a yummy lunch or side dish and will keep in the fridge for a few days. This is also my favorite way to roast butternut squash if you are looking for a roasted squash recipe.
