The BEST healthy 4th of July recipes with quinoa

Holidays and celebrations can be tough when you're trying to navigate your way through the menu while living on a gluten-free diet. For me, I've found that it's easiest if I can contribute something to the meal, which I've made at home, guaranteeing that I can eat it and still be safe.

With 4th of July, it usually means a BBQ in the backyard, fireworks, beer and time spent with friends and family. Healthy food may be the last thing on people's minds. But as a passionate quinoa lover, I want to show you some simple recipes that are not only delicious but are full of fresh fruits and vegetables, and are perfect for this fabulous summer celebration.
