One of the best ways people can improve their diets is to eliminate foods that generate unpleasant reactions in their bodies. The media’s increased coverage of gluten sensitivity and intolerance (symptoms include bloating, abdominal discomfort and even joint pain) has prompted many individuals to go gluten free, even though they’re not medically allergic to the substance.
Most stuffed mushrooms are smothered by a heavy layer of melted cheese, but these tasty caps contain only a light mixture of quinoa, fresh veggies and a trio of healthy seeds (hemp, chia and sesame). Just scoop, fill and bake for an irresistible appetizer that not only tastes great but is great for you!
In addition to being a nutrition powerhouse, quinoa is forever versatile. You can make it savory or sweet, all depending on what you mix in. The citrus and honey make the perfect combination in this simple gluten-free recipe, and the cilantro adds a pop of freshness.
Be thankful for the fresh, autumn flavors of acorn squash stuffed with quinoa and cranberries, seasoned with a delectable dash of basil. This side dish is perfectly suited for the Thanksgiving Day table and also makes for delicious leftovers.
