Roasted Brussel Sprout Quinoa Salad {Guest Post for Tasty Yummies}

Brussel Sprout & Quinoa Salad - Queen of Quinoa for Tasty Yummies

The holiday season is all about thankfulness and giving. It’s a time where we reflect on our lives and share special moments with the ones we love. Much of this time of year is spent around the dinner table, surrounded with friends and family, enjoying delicious food and each other’s company. My holidays are filled with raucous Italian laughter and seriously good eats, sometimes wildly unhealthy, but still utterly delightful.

I make a point to bring a healthy dish with me to each holiday gathering, for two reasons. First, I’m sensitive to gluten, so bringing my own dish with me ensures I will have something safe to eat (especially since my family is Italian which equals gluten central). Second, to put it simply, the holidays are also a time to eat, like a lot. And to me it’s important to stay healthy, so I choose to bring something nutritious for others to enjoy as well.

      Hey GB!!! I would use cranberries if you have them! Or you could use some other dried fruit. Something to give it a bite of sweetness :)
