This recipe is actually from the Ultimate Reset. It is the 21 day reset program that Beachbody has for those looking to get a handle on their nutrition and eating habits. 
This salad is perfect for lunch or dinner. The Quinoa is a great source of protein.  It is high in protein, calcium, and iron, quinoa is a great alternative to rice.  If you are new to quinoa and are not sure where to get it, you can most often find it in the grocery store near the rice.
