Quinoa is a low GI, gluten and grain-free option that contains a very wide profile of minerals including magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.

It is high in fibre and protein to keep you full for longer, making it a great diet addition for those wanting to lose weight.

Salmon is one of the best sources of omega 3, an essential fatty acid that the body can’t produce.

Eating salmon twice a week can aid in weight loss by increasing satiety, protect you from heart disease and keep your joints and skin healthy.

Enjoy this salad warm or make extra to have cold for tomorrow’s lunch!
