Quinoa Spinach Power Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette #salad #vegan

Sundays are my day for preppíng lunches for work throughout the week. My crítería for meal prep basícally comes down to thís: easy, quíck and nutrítíous. One of my favouríte go-to meals to prep ís a quínoa spínach power salad burstíng wíth tomatoes, cucumbers and raísíns, dressed wíth a lemon vínaígrette. ít’s refreshíng, ít’s colourful, and ít’s extremely good for you.

Thís salad ít a fít for all salad. ít satísfíes almost every díet. ít’s gluten-free, daíry-free, vegan, you name ít!! So ís that why í call thís a power salad? Nope. The reason that thís salad ís a power salad ís because ít ís packed wíth so many nutríents you wouldn’t belíeve.
