Spinach, Quinoa and Vegetable Salad with Soy Vinaigrette; Cooking to Combat Cancer — 10 Comments

  1. I love quinoa, we keep the red and the blond here, I haven’t come across any of the other kinds. We are in a health turn around too. Yay for super foods!
    Looks yummy!

  2. Awesome concept and it is very amazing how much our diet controls everything in our life including mood and energy level. My grandma use to be dang near militant about we are exactly what we eat. I can still hear her scream you want to shove those crappy fries in your mouth go ahead and don’t complain to me when you feel like crap. Of course she instead pushed pig’s feet, liver, heart, and everything offal on us.
    Great use of amazing flavors and can never go wrong with quinoa. I am going to have to give this a shot for my pre-softball energy meal too.

  3. Everything about this salad it wonderful! Thank you for participating in CCC3. You’re always so supportive. 😉

  4. Jeff, the think I remember most about meals when I was a child was very strict portion control… And, snacks, of course were ‘crap’
    Natashya, I have both as well – the red is very tasty, but not very photogenic… I think there is black, too.
    Chris, you’re welcome, sweetie ;-))
    Jann, and it seems so simple…why don’t we all do it all the time?

  5. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like we have a choice but we always do. I hope I make the right choice often enough to stay healthy. I know this salad would be a very easy choice! Beautiful with all the best stuff in it.

  6. Isn’t it nice to know that the things that taste great are also good for us?
    But, not necessarily inexpensive. I just went to the store to buy quinoa to try it out in a multigrain bread and decided against it. $6.00 for about 300gm seems just a little too steep. (Amazingly, when I googled about quinoa, I came across a website promoting it, saying that one of its many virtues was how inexpensive it was.) I think I’ll stick with using oat groats….

  7. Katie,
    That looks very healthy and delicious at the same time 🙂 I always promise myself to give quinoa second chance… the first time it tasted awful in salad with pomegranate and pine nuts. I really must try again.

  8. Tanna, sometimes it’s just too much work to make the right choice, too… for my lazy ass, anyway.
    Elizabeth, wow, it’s a lot cheaper here, around 3 euros for 500gr. Try another shop, maybe health food store..
    Margot, maybe it was untreated and needed to be washed. Try it again
