I love packing quinoa for my daily lunch but U have been looking for ways to spice it up and get out of the plain old plain old quinoa salad I have all the time. It being summer and all I am constantly craving fresh vegetables, which I certainly am not complaining about.  I decided to jam pack this quinoa bowl with delicious and bright vegetables!

    Yum! I love cilantro and avocado together! I also am a huge fan of adding saluted garlic kale to pretty much any kind of grain bowl – SO good!
