Healthy Quinoa Avocado Salad

Quick Healthy Recipe

For the last four years, my husband and I have started our year with a 21 Day Daniel Fast in order to start the year on a healthy note. Basically, the Daniel Fast allows one to eat anything that comes from a seed and not processed. Doing the Daniel Fast or any kind of no meat/dairy/sugar/processed food, etc. diet can be very challenging so it’s time to get creative…..

Here’s my version of a quick, easy, healthy and delicious salad.  Enjoy!
