Soups, salads, casseroles and more tasty treats you'll love!

If you could sum up the rules of healthy eating in two simple steps, they might go something like this:

  1. Pick foods with plenty of protein and fibre to keep you satisfied.
  2. Prep your meals ahead of time, so you always have a good-for-you option ready and waiting when hunger strikes.

Happily, there’s a category of recipes that can help you accomplish both of these things: big-batch quinoa dishes. The seed-like grain is loaded with protein and fibre (8 grams and 5 grams, respectively, per cooked cup!) and it lends itself perfectly to recipes like hearty salads and casseroles that you can make on a Sunday and keep eating all week long.
